How to print to my local priner via a RDP session?

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
Hi I have a local printer that I have attached to my network on the same subnet as my workstation.  I am using that workstation to connect to another machine in another office using RDP.  The remote machine is running Windows SBS 2003 and have a copy of office 2007 standard installed to it.  I would love to be able to use word on the server and print to my local printer as word connecst to our reporting tool on our companies Database which is located on the server!  

Any ideas?

I have ensured that the local printer option is checked on the RDP session byt still cant seem to you my printer?

Thanks Gurus
