I have a workstation that can not print to their local usb printer (Xerox 4118) from a remote desktop connection (terminal services).  I will print from a regular windows session. Can anyone shed some light on this problem for me?
Thanks and Merry Christmas

You need the exact same version of drivers installed on the terminal server as you do on the workstation.  You don't actually need to install the printer itself, only the drivers through the print server.
