Hi everyone

I am using terminal services to connect to a terminal server 2008 to a remote location.
on my LAN I have printers connected on windows XP workstations and windows 7 workstations.
Through the terminal session I have connected the printers by using \\ip address\sharename format (same way to all workstations).
The problem is that on windows7 printers there is lag. A simple print on winxp printer takes 20 secs but on win7 can take 120 secs.
There is a lag even when I open printer properties. On winxp is instant but on win7 can take up to 30 secs.
On printer properties on port tab I notisted, the winxp printer has a port like: \\\hp2200 description:local port but at the win7 printer has port:USB001 description:virtual printer port

I think am missing something simple, please advice
