    Possibly because the Terminal Server hasn't got the drivers for the laserjet installed.

    Yep you need to install the driver on your TS.

    i have the drivers set up for it in the server and also have the option set to share printers.  so im not sure whats going on with it.

    To be clear. Having the driver files on your TS isn't what's required. You need to actually register them on your TS, the quickest way to do this is to add the printer as a new printer on your TS.
    Good luck!
