Cant see local printers in remote desktop

We have 5 client workstations (XP boxes) printing to a networked laser printer and are using remote desktop to access the company server (Win2K3).  The printer driver is installed on the server, the RDP is set to automatically connect local printers, and the user accounts on the server are set to connect to local printers.  However, it doesnt happen.  Whether I'm logging in as a standard user or administrator and there is nothing out of the ordinary in the event viewer.  Can anyone think of what I may be missing?

Thanks for the response.  Howerver, I was able to resolve the problem by selecting "enable printer pooling" on the ports tab of the client machine.  I then selecting both the actual port the printer is attached to as well as LPT1.  The solved the problem.
