Here is our setup:

Terminal Server A (Server 2003)
Terminal Server B  (Server 2003)
Client Home PC ( Connected to network via VPN ) (Windows XP )

We need for the client to print directly to his local printer from the terminal server(s).  I have tried many things to make this work but all have failed.  I made sure the connect printers option is selected in the remote desktop settings and I made sure both teh server and client computer have the same driver installed.

I just wanted to know the easiest most effienct way to get this remote printing setup.  I am even willling to use a 3rd party program to do so.  Please help!
