Windows 7: Remote Desktop - redirected printing not working

Remote Desktop - redirected printing not working

Hi all,

I connect to my work PC using a VPN and Remote Desktop (RDP). While at home I would like to print to my home printer while logged into my work PC. In other words, open a word doc on my work PC and have it print at home.

Both PCs are windows 7 64-bit. The home printer is connected using USB. My work printer is shared. I verified in the RDP properties that Local Resources - Printers - was enabled. The printer is not being redirected and I cannot print to my home printer.

Any ideas?
