No printers during RDP from Win7 to 2k3

We have an older Windows 2003 server that we are phasing out, but accounting still needs to use it while we transition from Windows XP to Windows 7 workstations.

Currently Windows XP clients RDP into this server using terminal sessions and the iPrint printers installed on their workstations follow them to their RDP session, but this no longer works from a Windows 7 client.

The RDP configuration on a client defaults to bring the printer resources over to the server so I'm not sure where to look next.

I double checked our Zenworks 10.3 group policies and they don't lock down any of the Computer Configuration policies, only User Configuration, but even then I can only find a single printer related policy.

Anyone else run into this? It seems very simple and I'm overlooking something basic.
