Printing From Remote Desktop

Have a situation where I need to be able to print remotely using remote desktop connection. I will be connecting from a computer that has windows xp professional installed and I will be connecting to a server running server 2003. I have two seperate printers that I would like to use from seperate locations. One printer will be connected directly to the xp machine via usb and the second will be a homw network printer. On the 'Local Resources' tab the printers box is checked and I still can not print any ideas?
1 Solution
the printer drivers have to be installed on the server itself so it can relate the local printer over the terminal server connection
Is it a usb printer?  usb virtual ports have problems with terminal server.  Try net2printer http://www.net2printer.com/, .  I use it everywhere and it works with multifunction usb local printers.
