Printers do not show in Windows Terminal Services

(Taken from MS Knowledgebase article #302361, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/302361)

Cause

This problem occurs because the printer port does not begin with COM, LPT, or USB. Ports such as DOT4, etc. will not be redirected.

Resolution

Force all ports on the client computer to be filtered for redirection. To perform this, create a DWORD value named FilterQueueType under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Default\AddIns\RDPDR and set the value to FFFFFFFF.
