Terminal Services printing

Hi all, I use terminal services when some folks log into the server then it will start a print session and the can print at their location.  This works fine.  

The problem i've run into is I have setup a VPN connection so the person can become part of the network, and once connected she use remote desktop connection via IP to log into her system at her main office.  Everything works great, she sees her desktop, now she wants to print and this is where I'm stuck.

I installed the print driver on her system at the main office and setup the printer at the remote site.  But just thinking that this will start a print sessioon like the server and it did not.

How can I get her to be able to print while logged into here system at work?

Is it a USB, networked or similar printer using an 'odd' printer port.  There are some issues with that, will find you a link if so.

True, or if they are using an older TS / RDP client than the XP one.
