We have a Windows 2008 server which was setup as a terminal server.   I have most of the printers working but I have not been able to get a Brother DCP-8065DN working.

It is connected to a Windows XP PC and I have made sure that on the server in the Print Server I added the x86 version of the print driver from Brother.  I also made sure that I loaded the same version of the print driver on the local PC.   I have tried a few different print drivers with the same results.  

Whichever driver I have loaded, when I log onto the Terminal Server using Remote Desktop the printer is not connected.  I have made sure Remote Desktop is supposed to connect the local printers.

The printer is setup as a network printer.  It is at a remote location so I am not able to just add it directly the Terminal Server and share it.

As you are on 2008 platform and you have already installed proper driver on with proper version.

HAve you tried to the Use Terminal Services Easy Print printer driver first Group Policy setting?
