Does anyone know of an all-in-one printer that works with terminal service printing?  I would preferably like to purchase one of the HP all-in-ones.

Hi menreeq,

any printer that is compatible with windows 2000, should work fine with windows 2000 terminal server

what exactly are you trying to do from terminal server with the printer?

Hope that helps

not necessarily...most all-in-one printer will not work even after remapping and a few changes in the registry.  I am looking for someone that had success remapping an all-in-one and making it working through terminal services.

If you have said printer set up correctly with drivers and all on the server, it should be available when working in terminal services as though it were a local printer to that server.

If it is connected to your local desktop, you need to check a few things....Such as if the drivers for the printer are installed on the server because, unless otherwise specified in Terminal Services settings, your server attempts to connect to your local printer when you start a TS session.  If it can't, you will get consecutive errors in the server event log regarding printers and terminal services.  Once connected, your terminal services session will display your local printer as available from the list of installed units.

Just my two cents....

In theory LDaley is should work that easily but from my expereince it has not.  I often turn to http://www.printingsupport.com/ for help on this problem but i was hoping to find someone that had actually connected an all-in-one and had it working with terminal services.  If anyone has done this please let me know the model and what drivers you mapped the printer to.  Thanks.

I have a similar problem and am anxious to hear the answer. I have a Server2003 and am trying to get some allo-in-one printers attached to the clients to print from a TS session. They print find locally, but the app on the server won't. I get a message like "cannot communicate with the printer."

I've tried a Dell 942, a Lexmark, and an HP OJ, and they all basically don't work as expected. They are all connected via USB ports to the client PCs and the queues seem to be automatically created on the server when the client logs in using Terminal Services. I compleated the Registry entry for redirection suggested my microsoft, but it didn't help. I've installed the same drivers at both the client and the server. I've even put all of the clients accounts into the administrator group on the server.

Any other suggestions?
