Win 2003 Terminal Server default printers

We have a remote site that logs into our terminal server and prints to their location.
I have a VPN setup between both locations.  I added the IP address' of the remote sites printers to the terminal server and then added the printer using the ip address as the port.  Alll the printers at the remote site are IP based.

Here is the problem.  The remote site has 8 printers.  A user can make the printer they want their local printer, but then the next time they logon, it is changed to something else.  Is there a way through AD to define who gets what default printer.

I believe that is a feature in AD 2008 but not 2003.
Have a look at DEFSET - a freeware tool to set the default printer on a per user basis, by Ctrl-Alt-Del IT Consultancy
and scrool down until you find DEFSET.
