I have connected my local computer in remote desktop connection utility. The client machine I am using is windows XP sp3 with .NET 3.5sp1 . I am connecting to windows 2003 server. However when I go to printer session in 2008 I could not see my local printer in server. I have checked local resources in client machine which establishing remote connection.

I have googled and found various fixes in GP, but could not get the result.

Is there something I am missing it out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you installed the drivers for that printer on the machine you are demoting into? If that machine doesnt have drivers it won't show up.
