Hi - I'm RDP'ing from a Windows 7 machine to a Windows Vista machine and trying to to print thru RDP - I'm assuming its similar to Citrix where you need to install the driver for the printer on the Vista machine - 2 questions, should i be installing the driver for WIn 7 or Vista? Also, what do i choose for the port? Cant get it to work!

    Well neither actually

    heres what you do :

    click on Remote desktop connection, click on options(bottom left), click Local resources, tick printers ( bottom left)

    then connect to the machine and your printer will be available on that machine and you can print as if printing off your own machine
