Hi All,
I dial in to a terminal server at a remote location where there is a main database of a program. I have three different local printers that I want to use through the terminal services session. What is the best way to handle this ?

There is a MS Document on this at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/overview/tsprint.mspx
but the article at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/overview/tsprint.mspx is probably better. Bear in mind that you will need to make specila arragements for USB printers - see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/302361

As I mentioned in your other question about webcam, you go to the Local Resources tab page and tick the Printer box. So that you can have all your printer(s) to choose from.

If you have create the RDP icon on your desktop, right click on the icon and choose EDIT. You will be able to see the Local Resources tabpage.
