Ok so we are trying to get a few computers across the state running Remote Desktop/Terminal Server. The way we intend is that they do a remote desktop to a remote server and from there can use an application and such and print reports or whatever they need.
My problem is that sometimes the printers do not show up and sometimes they do on the remote server. For instance two computers are side by side and have the same printer setup. On one computer you can login to the terminal server and it shows all the printers in the printers control panel page. On the other computer it does not show any printers. What prevents them from being shared from this one computer?
The only differences I'm seeing is that the one that works has SP3 and the one that doesn't has SP2. Both are Windows XP Professional x86. Is there something more light than SP3 that I can install to fix only this problem? Also I've tried installing SP3 on some computers and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I'm not sure what I'm missing. Also, both computers have .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 installed.
Also, a bit more info: The printer for both computers is a network printer. Same printer for both computers and they are on the same network.
