Click Start, point to All Programs (or Programs), point to Accessories, point to Communications, and then click Remote Desktop Connection.
Click Options, and then click the Local Resources tab.

You must make sure that the terminal Server has the EXACT same Driver as the Local Client Computer that is trying to use the Term Server. Example: So if you have
Canon iR7086-7105-S2 PS Ver2.0 you need to have same on both computers. ver1.5 wont work. Understand?

The printer I am having issues with is a MFP.
I tried a basic printer that takes a universal driver and it works fine.  Was easier to install the same driver on the server and pc
Thanks
