Windows Server 2008 R2 remote desktop printing problem

  1. At my office I currently have a Windows Server (2008 R2). We have it configured with remote desktop services and as an application server. All of the roles work fine, however we can not get any remote printers to function.

    My home computer is running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. I have a HP C4795 Photosmart printer connected to my computer. When I connect to the remote server, in the remote desktop settings (Options>Local Resources) I have selected my local drives, PnP devices, and printers. When I try to print from my remote desktop I select the printer that I have locally (It shows up as redirected on remote desktop) but nothing prints.

    I am not sure if there is additional steps I need to take as far as setting up so any advice is appreciated.
