Why can't I see my networked printer when connected to Terminal Services 2003?

I'm using RDC from a Windows XP box to connect to a remote Windows 2003 server using Terminal Services. I have a local network-connected printer. When connected through TS, I can see all locally shared printers except the network connected one. Why is that?

You should try installing your networked printer as a local printer but use a TCP/IP port with an IP address.
