I have a computer that is running the 64bit version of windows vista and I am connecting using windows remote desktop to a server in another location running windows server 2003.  I want to be able to print from the server computer onto my local printer.  Is that possible and how?  The printer is a Brother MFC-490CW.

Open the Remote Connection window.  When you open it, click the "RESOURCES" tab.  Check the PRINTERS box.  If you have the appropriate privleges setup on the server, you would then be able to install your printer's appropriate drivers, and use it just as you are requesting.  Do you know if you have the appropriate settings configured to do such a task?
