Local printers unavailable
We have two LANs connected by a VPN. Our buyer who is on one LAN connects to a Point of Sale computer on the other LAN using Remote Desktop. Until now she has been connecting from a Windows Vista Pro system to a Windows XP Pro system. We have purchased a new POS computer running Windows 7 Pro for her to use and she has come up with a problem. She needs to "take her printers" with her. I guess the correct jargon would probably be something like "she needs access to her local printers while using the remote system". It is not working. I just checked it out going from my Windows 7 system to the new system, clicking the Printers box under Local Resources and it doesn't take my printers with me, either. This is a more serious problem than it might sound because POs are generated on that remote system, but printed and/or faxed from the local one.
A bit more background. Her main system is still Vista Pro and no upgrade is in the pipeline at this time. When I enabled Remote Desktop I chose the option that enabled it for connection from any version of Remote Desktop because it was my understanding that only Windows 7 can use the more secure option. Was I right?
Is there any way to make this function actually work? Is it a known bug or a setup problem on my part?
