Have you set your default printer to be the one on the remote pc ?

Yes on the main PC the default is the printer I am trying to redirect, but on the remote pc it doesn't even show up
On the machine you are remoting TO, check your Event Viewer for the source "Remote Desktop Services/Terminal Services", and you might get additional information. Or "Print" as the source even......
