Remote Desktop connection and Network printer.

Hi everyone, I'm currently using windows 7 and I have configure the options of remote desktop connections to see my printer and local drive (I'm able to see my local drive). I'm having an issue viewing my printer. My printer is on a wired network and I've been reading that its not being detected because is not on a LPT or USB ports. Can anyone tell me how I can go about to configure my system or remote desktop to see my network printer when I connect the the RDC connection.


I was able to resolve it by adding the printer as a local printer on the remote workstation. All that was needed was the driver to be installed and for you to select the manual port. Hopes this helps some else out.
