Network printers & RDP

Setting up a remote user today, who has a network printer on their local network which they want available to the RDP session (over VPN).

RDP doesn’t by default redirect non COM/LPT/USB ports - i.e. an IP port.

Thankfully, a simple registry edit noted in MS KB 302361 makes it easy to tell XP to redirect other ports.
