Printer issue with remote desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Ok, From home desktop I remote log into a computer in our office and I can print reports to my printer at home, when I look in the remote computers printer folder I see my home printer and the office printers, all looks good.
    I log in from my laptop at home and I can't print!
    The home printer is installed on the laptop.
    When I look in the printer folder on the remote computer it dos not show my home printer (unlike if I login from my home desktop.)

    In remote desktop options printers are selected under Local Devices
    The office computer has the same printer drivers.
    The back office program dosn't have a dropdown printer option menu.

    This system was able to connect in the past.
