I have a rackspace remote server for windows server 2008 r2 enterprise edition and have some local printers but can't figure out how to get that server to print to my local printers here at my office...i just don't know how to redirect the printers to print to multiple printers or is there a way. It does print to my default printer on the workstation that I am remoting in from. I have tried to change the default printer and verified boxes under rdp is ticked for printer sharing. still won't let me add the other printer

Are the other printers network printers? Are they installed on your workstation so you can print to them?

Also if the driver for those printers do not come natively with Server 2008 you will have to install the driver before the RDP session can print with them.
