RDP-Group Policy mgr.console

SO i have a 2003 sbs using  term server feature for a vpn and when using remote desktop to connect don't have access to my local printers. Where in the server can i find the option for letting client have access to BOTH printers AND files.?
server has the group policy management console with service pack 1 installed on it so the group policy format looks totally diff. than the normal one.. the user is running windows 7 ultimate.

Inside administrative tools which you find in control panel (or start menu), you find terminal services. Inside T.S., you find Terminal services session host configuration (not 100% sure about the name on 2003). There in, you find settings to deny printer and drive redirection, GPOs are not needed here.

1) http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc775863(v=ws.10).aspx#BKMK_ts
2) you need to modify the following policy at the domain level or at the server's local gpedit.msc: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc756809(v=ws.10).aspx
If you don't find that confiugartion, open rsop.msc at the terminal server and see what policy has set it.

so tried the above and still no avail. local printer when logging in remote...could it be that the type of printer is the prob.? there must be a place where this is set that we have not seen yet? what about the vpn ip? could that have a setting? all i really know is that they use an ip to remote in and then it is using term.services after that....thx

On server 2003, there was no "easy print" feature as there is with server 2008 and higher.
For printer redirection, you need to install the drivers at the server. If those are installed and still don't show, open eventvwr, there will be log entries telling you why.

also the rsop.msc has nothing enabled... so where is the prob. that would cause this?

didn't see last post -- but have tried installing the printer on the server end, but because it's a usb hp printer, it won't let me go past the "hook up usb now"...so i can't get the driver on the server. have looked at ev several times, but will look again for anything about the printer...this should not be that hard......thx

No matter what model, you can also fake-install it on LPT1 (even if both the printer and the server don't have an LPT-port). I have never had problems installing a printer just because it wasn't connected.

you would think so but with the hp lj m375-475 install routine it does not give that choice, check it out it is funky...i think i just finally got it to install, but i had to find where it dumped the extracted files at as it would not do it the normal hp install way...only had choices of it having to find the printer via wi-fi---usb---or ip address...so now i will see if this solves the problem....thanks for stepping up for me...i will get back to you soon as i can get to clients laptop, it's off now, and see if i can see the printer....
