My Win 7 HP (64bit) has a connected printer Photosmart C7280 All in One.  When I RDP into my SBS 2003 (32bit) server the printer dows not show up.  I have looked for a SBS 2003 driver
for the SBS but can't find one any ideas how to resolve this problem.

    You need to have the Driver on the Server for a successful Printer redirection ,

    You can use this KB Article ,

    and download the tool Download the Terminal Server Printer Redirection Wizard from the link provided in the KB Article ,

    Do select a matching printer Driver from the Server  , which works with the printer and you should be able to print from the redirected Printer . Your printers would also redirect after running and selecting the appropiate driver .

    If you do not find any driver then select the Generic Text only Printer Driver which would help you take a Basic Print out  . For further information about the Printer Driver get in touch with your Printer Manufacturers or get to their website .

    Feel free to throw in some questions .
    Thanks ,

    I had the client download LogMeIn and that solved the problem.  None of the other suggestions worked.
