Can't print locally through Terminal Server via Remote Desktop

Hey guys, Im not sure if I am doing this right, But I am trying to print locally in the office from a IP printer through a Terminal Server I am accessing via Windows Remote Desktop.

What I have done is:

- Installed printer on the Terminal Server via RDP with the correct drivers using TSxx CompName PRx port (e.g. TS01 MyPc PRN5 port)
- Remote Desktop application has Printers ticked to bring accros when in session
- When i set this up, it worked, appeared fine and printer perfectly, then the next day, the printer dissapears from the terminal server, like it is deleted
- I reinstalled it the same way and it worked again, until the next day I come in and its gone again, its like a loop, i just keep going around and around in circles.

Im obviously not doing something right. This method seems to work fine with USB printers, I havent done one yet for IP printer, not sure if its same or different method...

Thank you, that is great information, however, it only really explains LPT, COMM and USB printers, what about Ethernet/IP based printers. I would like to know more about that. Do you install them the same as a USB printer AND i have heard about making the destination on the Terminal Server as a public IP/port and getting the print job redirected through the internet that way...any ideas?
