Windows 7: Remote Desktop Windows 7 Pro to XP Pro How do I pass through PCI-E LPT

Remote Desktop Windows 7 Pro to XP Pro How do I pass through PCI-E LPT

Help please!

I have a desktop in a remote location used to connect to a PC in main location to run a program. The new computer put in the satellite office running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit did not have parallel ports and I needed two ... So I installed two PCI-E cards to add the ports. These print fine locally but the printers do not pass through to the Windows XP Pro machine.

How can I make the PCI-E LPT ports available in the remote session?

If you click edit on the remote desktop icon and go to local resources. Click the printers tick box. This will allow remote printing using local printers.
