remote printers with terminal server 2008

we have remote users that use terminal services all day long (basically never use their local workstation). The local office has a 2008 windows server for files, a 2008 server for the terminal server. the remote location has a Ricoh and an HP that they want to print to from the terminal server session. How do we configure the terminal server for 2 remote printers? we don't want to use redirection - we want the printers to be visible on the terminal server, and accessible to all the users remoting in with RDP.

Add the printers on the TS.

Are the remote printers accessible from the TS? Do you have a VPN between the two locations?
Deploy the printers using GPO/GPP to the users on the TS?
If you do not have a VPN between the locations, redirections is the only way, you need only add the drivers for the printers on the TS.

They are now. There is a VPN, and the TS side could not see the remote side. A reboot at the remote site fixed that. YOUr VPN comment is what made us look and find this issue. Installing the printers now. All good. Thank you.
