question,

i have a xp home machine at one company (they bought it new when i told them to get pro) and a 03 server at another company, set up as a terminal server

I can vpn into the server with the xp home machine and even remote desktop into it so that the on ecompany can run a program off that server, but they need to print from that program to their local printer,
when i set it up at my office i could print to my network printer fine, i have xp pro.

the printer they have is a dell ap900 or something, its got a usb connection, the server cannot find that printer when they connect to the server, i tried to install it and everything.

can they even print from the server sinse they got xp home and a usb printer.
