Adding a printer to remote office that uses RDS

Hi

We have a main office with a TCP/IP printer. The printer is currently on the same LAN as the firms RDS (Terminal Server). The printer is going to be moved to a remote office.

The goal is for users of the RDS server be able to print to the printer once it's been moved to the remote office. What's the best way of doing this.

At present there is no site to site VPN and the remote office has the same 192.168.1/24 network. I was thinking that I could install the printer locally on the users in the remote office's Windows 7 machine then allow printer redirection to allow the RDS Server see the printer. Is that the easiest method. I've seen other guys change remote network ID, setup a site to site VPN and print that way but I want to minimize work deploying this.

Thanks

remote desktop printing is probably the easiest, just make sure that the drivers are installed on the terminal server as well, and set it as the default printer for the clients before you connect to the terminal server.
