    I cannot find help on this anywhere. I currently use terminal services to
    force the local server to spool remote printers. I started doing this
    because the print jobs would spool too slowly via VPN. I have been doing
    this for several years, first with a Windows 2000 Server, then Windows 2003
    Server. I am trying to set up a Windows 2008-based server, but when I get
    the redirected printer on Windows 2008, it only shows up on the session of
    the machine that has the printer attached to it. None of the other remote
    desktop sessions show the redirected printers. I tried making both users
    part of Administrators and Power Users. Any suggestions?
