Printer Redirection Not Working Anymore - Windows XP

I have a Windows XP computer (32 bit) that seems to have stopped redirecting printers in Remote Desktop Connection sessions.   The Printers option is checked off on the local resources tab of the RDC client. If I connect to any other computer on my network, my printers are redirected. The printer is an HP Laserjet 4250. I downloaded identical 32 bit and 64 bit drivers from HP's website, installed both sets of drivers on my local and remote computers, and it still won't redirect. I even tried creating a group policy on my domain to force allow resource redirection, but it hasn't helped. Is there anything else I can try? I'd really like to get this working with RDC and not have to use another 3rd party application like LogMeIn or Go to my PC.

To clarify, the remote computer is Windows XP 32 bit and the local computer is Windows 7 64 bit.

Is the printer connected by USB?

Is the Port on the local PC designated as a DOT...  type?

If this is the case then  use this solution

It turned out that the printer drivers on the local and remote computers probably didn't match with identical versions. I removed all of the HP drivers from both machines, then downloaded matching drivers from HP's website, installed them, and voila. The printer was redirected. I think cleaning the systems of the old drivers fixed the problem. Hope this helps someone.
