HP T5545 Thin Client connecting to Windows XP box by RDP


Win a HP T5545 thin client connect to a Windows XP desktop (not a terminal server) via RDP?

We are not a big company and i need to be able to have one user connecting to our network via RDP offsite (an outsourcing company).

There is no reason why not. RDP is RDP weather on a Terminal Server or a 'Pro' level OS. The Windows XP must be the Professional edition. Ensure you have allowed port '3389' through the firewall ono the desktop.

i have anohter question if i may?

i want to attach a USB printer to the T5545 (a Kyocera 1030D).

I need to connect by USB and not network as the T5545 will but on my outsourcer's network as opposed to my own.

Will the printer be available to the machine that the remote desktop session connects to?
