I work at a number of cleint sites. Within each I have set up their
printers on my notebook as IP printers in order to print "locally".

I also use remote desktop to connect to my own office server.

What I don't seem to be able to do is print to the client printers directly
from the remote desktop. I can see some local printers on the desktop (my
home one) but not any of the ones that were set up as IP printers.

Help!!

You need the Windows drivers for your local IP-connected printers also to be
installed on your office server.
