Terminal Server Printing via VPN connection

Posted on 2009-02-09
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I have a Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition running terminal services for my remote users.  I just noticed the printers are not installed.  I either have to start or restart the Print Spooler and them came back after refreshing.   I updated the drivers for the installed printers.  This is happening with my remote users in another state connected via a VPN.  They have a local printer installed.  Why is this happening?  Thanks.
