Print through Mstsc


I have connected through Mstsc to a remote machine.I have the excel sheet on the mstsc remote machine. I need to print to a printer on the machine i am sitting.Is there a way to print.
I cannot install the printer on the mstsc machine as it is in a different building and we have blocked printing between buildings.

I can do it but the users if they need to print many pages every day.It would be very difficult on a daily basis for it...
Ok.. this is wat i tried..

I remote into Machine B from my machine (machine A) ...

I open a file 123.txt I go to File>Print

The print dialogue opens
On the GENERAL tab

I see    "Printer1 on PrnSrv1 ( From Machine A) "
I Click Ok..
