Does anyone know of a printer model that is available that works with Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services?  Or a technique to get a printer working *reliably* over a RDP connection from an XP Pro system?

Thanks you for your input.

What type of problems are you having?  Can you see the printer at all in your TS session?

Make sure you have the printer driver installed on the Terminal server. I am assuming that you want your clients to be able to use their local printers through the RDP session?

The main problem is getting the right printer to do the job.  I know All In Ones do not work.  I traded that in for a straight printer, HP 6988, but no driver for Windows 2003.  I'm looking at the OfficeJet K5400, but how do I really know this will work?  I hate to return a printer for a 3rd time.  Is there ANY definitive way to determine in advance whether a  particular printer will in fact map correctly to a TS port or not?  It seems to me that this shouldn't be such a difficult thing to implement... but it is.  Is there any criteria or requirements anywhere documented by Microsoft?

Yeah, this is for RDP sessions to the server.

Thanks dfxdeimos.  This implementation seems to be an all around pooch screw each time I try to set up a remote desktop connection.  You think MS would have been able to implement this just a wee bit better.
