HP 895cxi trouble installing on NT Server 4.0 Terminal Server Edition

I'm having problems installing the HP 895 printer on Windows NT Terminal Server.

I have the printer attached to a D-Link and have made a connection to it on a NT Server.  This prints no problem at all.  I can connect to this connection on the server from a Windows 95 machine and print fine.  Well, the test page prints and it shows NO error messages.  So I assume it's OK!!

However, when I connect just the same on Windows NT Server Terminal Server Edition, I get an error of "Device settings cannot be displayed.  The driver for the specified printer is not installed, only spooler properties will be displayed.  Do you want to install the driver now?"  If I click yes then I get "Driver failed to install.  Only spooler properties will be displayed."  I cannot print a test page.  I get "Test page failed to print".  This is logged on as an Administrator and if I do it as a user then I get similar messages.  These messages however refer to permissions.

Why won't it install on Terminal Server?????????????????????????????????

From your message, I understood that you most probably have a problem with the driver itself. Try to get a driver that support NT server Terminal Server Edition from HP Co. or resellers. Win NT is very sensitive operating system. You must clearly define each device with the correct driver.

Another possibility, from the D-Link attached to printer. It seems has incompatibililty with NT server Terminal Edition. Have you define it well?

What do you mean by "Have you define it well?"
Try to connect the printer directly to NT server you have without the D-Link and see what happen. If it prints well, then the D-Link is incompatible.  
This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
