    Hello everyone,

    I searched the FAQ, so if I missed it, please excuse me.

    I am having a problem with a client, where they have Vista Pro at home and rdp into an XP Pro machine at their office. They cannot print to their local printer. When I say cannot print, I mean the printer doesn’t appear as a selection. I have verified that local printing is selected. I can rdp into their office with my xp machine and have no problem printing locally.

    So my first thought is their XP host machine needs to have a Vista print driver installed to service their local printer. Am I correct in my thinking? If so I don’t seem to be able to figure out how to install a Vista print driver on an XP machine.
