Printer redirection not working

HI Guys, I am having a problem that is driving me crazy.

I have several clients connecting to remote desktop to my x64 Server 2008 server.

Printer redirection is working fine except for one client.

Here is the predicament. He travels between two houses and has the same printers at both houses, an MFC 7420, and its connection is via USB.  Bot PC's are  win XP

When he's at house A, the printer redirection works fine and there are no dramas.
at House B the printer does not appear under the printers section in control panel.
The only things that appear under printers at House B  are 1. Microsoft XPS Document Writer and 2. Microsoft XPS Document Writer (redirected 1)

It appears there is some sort of redirection because of the "Microsoft XPS Document Writer (redirected 1)".

Any suggestions?>
