I have a DC running RDS, besides that this server is very vanilla.

The problem I am having is with a remote XP SP3 user with a deskjet 712 printer - it will install the printer redirection and when you print, nothing happens.

I have tried disabling easy print in GP and what results is that the printer uses the deskjet 710c driver (I previously tried to install it on lpt1) and then the print spooler crashes when I try to print.

I solved this problem by changing the permissions on the c:\windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS directory as detailed in this article: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=968605
