Remote Desktop - Client printer problems.

I have a customer running Windows 2000 SBS.

When I connect via RDC everything is okay, except that my local printers are not redirected for use.  When I connect to another customer running 2003 SBS there is no problem.

Could someone please advise as to whether this is a driver or a policy issue.  When I connect I am seeing an odd message in the Application log with regard to printers, but the printer shown (Brother 6050) does not match my local printer (Brother 1250).

Many thanks.

If the customer doesn't have the drivers loaded for your printer when you RDP in, your local printer will not be redirected.  They will need to load drivers on the server for your printer.

Another place to look is on the server itself under Terminal Service Configuration>Properties of RDP-TCP>Client Settings and verify that "Connect client printers at logon" is selected.

Many thank Eagle.  The first part I had, but the second I was unaware of.

Cheers.
