Trying to accomplish 2 things...
Priority:  User in a remote office, XP Pro, MSHOME Workgroup, cannot see local printer when remoting into Server 2000 and thus can't print to same printer

Second:  That local printer is a networked printer (it has an IP address).  Can I set up this printer on the Server by port forwarding at the local router (they have a static IP).

You need to install the printer on the server so the driver will be installed when the remote user logins.

Sorry this link should have been attached too.

Make sure the printing redirection is checked here.

Go into Administrative tools -> Terminal Service Configuration -> Right
click on RDP -TCP and check in there.
