in fact of networkprinter: try to use a local printer. make a new tcpip port and add printer with os dependent driver (as domain admin). normally all user connect via workstation rdp see the new 'local' Printer.

Try to login to TS as domain admin from Workstations. Do you see Printer?

in fact of local printer try to connect local printer in rpd connection as redirected printer

hope it helps

1) cannot installed a local tcpip port, it's saying the specified location does not contain a compatible software driver. The server is windows 2003 64 bits and i'm running windows 2k and xp clients.

2) I did login as domain admin with no luck.

3) not sure how to do that.

in regard to x64 OS you need to install x64 driver! This driver can't be installed an x86 OS like Windows XP.

HP Driver i.e. published an 'universial driver' for x64 OS. Try to use a Windows 2003 x64 built-in-driver (Add Printer - Windows -show all ...)

Is it a local or network printer?

RDP-Redirect: Open RDP-File-Modify-local Ressources check Printer. So local Printer is 'redirect' into terminalserver session without the need of installing a windows server driver.

i've installed the 64 bits driver and it works with my 64 bits os but my problem is with windows xp and 2k.  I've install the universal driver for x86 os for 2k and xp and only the xp client works now. Now the win2k client is not working. I'm using the universal drivers for all the clients.

it's a network printer.

if you talk about windows xp i guess "install rdp 7.0 so everthing works fine..." ... but Windows 2000 ...?

It must be a problem with RDP 5.?. You've installed all windows 2000 hotfixes  ... oh don'T know if microsoft publish any further window 200 updates ...

I installed all the hotfixes with RDP 5.1 running on win2k. Has anyone gotten win2k printers to work with TS 2003 or is that even possible? Thanks.

ok i found out rdp 5.2 is the lastest version for win2k. I installed it and used the universal printer drivers and now the printers are showing up in win2k ts session.  Now does any one if there is a universal print driver for Canon image series? Thanks.
