local printing using remote desktop connection - Windows Server

When I connect to my server using remote desktop connection from my Windows XP pc, I cannot print locally. I have gone into the settings tab and made sure that the printers box is checked, but the only available printers that show up are the computers installed on the server. My local printers are not to be found. How can I print locally while connected to the server using remote desktop connection?...

    Default local printing using remote desktop connection

    When I connect to my server using remote desktop
    connection from my Windows XP pc, I cannot print locally.
    I have gone into the settings tab and made sure that the
    printers box is checked, but the only available printers
    that show up are the computers installed on the server. My
    local printers are not to be found. How can I print
    locally while connected to the server using remote desktop
    connection?

    Default Re: local printing using remote desktop connection

    Connect to the Terminal Server and start the Add
    Printer applet. Select Local printer and change the Port from LPT1 to a TS
    port - usually TS001.
