Multiple remote printers with terminal server

I need to install multiple printers at a remote location which all of the users are using Winterms to remote into our corporate location using Terminal Server 2008 R2. I have one local printer setup and it works fine, when I install a the second printer it locally on the file and print server here with the WAN IP of the remote site it prints to the original printer. How can I differentiate the IP of the new printer so that it can be used? I am thinking I would have to assign it another port besides 9100 in the remote router.

Thanks in advance.

Is this second printer has a share name/printer name  ?

If the both printers are connected at the same time, obviously we also need to configure different ports for them

Makes sense but I am wondering will remote printing work over another port besides 9100?

i don't think there is dependency on port number 9100, you can use any number.
