Remote Desktop Local Resources Issue - Printer

I have a PC at an offsite home office which is accessing their business via Cisco VPN. When they RDP into their work desktop, it does not pull the local resources/printers over. However, when they RDP into a terminal server (Server 2008 R2) at that same business, it does pull the local resources/printers over.

"Local devices and resources: Printers and Clipboard" are checked when connecting to both. Need to have the resources pull over when connecting to the work desktop because it has applications that cannot be installed on the terminal server for security purposes.

Is there a setting on the work PC that needs to be checked? The work PC they are remoting into is Windows 7 Pro. The PC at the home office they are remoting in from is Windows 7 Pro.

Check your VPN settings--what are you using to create your VPN? It sounds like there is a security setting that is preventing local resources from joining that network (which is not a bad thing--it is a security thing).

You need to install the drivers for their home printer on their office PC.

No issues with the VPN. It's a VPN connection created on a Cisco 1811.

I'll try the drivers on the office PC and see if that works.
