printer setup

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).

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.

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