Canon printers not compatible with Remote Desktop

    According to Canon Tech Support--spoke to the manager -- no Canon
    Printer is compatible with XP Pro's and Vista Business's Remote Desktop.
    Since their printer drivers are made in Japan, the manager of inkjet
    support told me all he could do was forward my request to the highest
    level here in America with the suggestion of supporting the Remote desktop.

    I even tried Black Ice's Print2XP (the cost is over $100 and no phone
    support) which is supposed to create a virtual printer 2 days ago but
    cannot get it to work --although email tech support is suppose to help
    me soon.

    Does anyone know a way to get my PC at work which uses Vista Business
    to list my Canon Printer So I am able to print documents on my work
    machine and on my Novell Network of which I am the Admin? My home
    machine has XP Pro.

    When I had the Epson 980 Printer, using Windows 2000 at home and XP Pro
    at work, the printer was recognized on my work PC and I had no problems

    Thanks in advance,
