Remote Desktop Printing Problems

  1. I recently bought an HP Deskjet 6980 and connected it to my computer at home via USB. I remote desktop from my home computer into my computer at the office and would like to print on my home printer. I had no problems doing this with my old printer.

    The new printer does not show up during my remote session. Here are the things I have tried:

    I'm out of ideas now. Can anyone help? Has anyone else run into this problem? Thanks in advance.

    This might well depend on the remote access program you are running. I would be interested to hear as I also have a problem with this.
