Wireless Printing with RDP connect to a Windows 2003 Terminal Server
Posted on 2006-04-10
This is the situation that I have. I have a HP 6980 Deskjet printer with a built in wireless print server. The drivers have been installed on the Terminal Server which has Windows 2003 Server on it. Also the print drivers have been loaded on individual laptops. All of the laptops have WinXP sp2. All of the laptops can print fine wireless to the printer when the laptops are not connected to the Terminal Server through RDP. The problem arises when connecting to the terminal server, only one laptop sees the printer wireless, but if the printer is connected directly to the laptops the laptops do recognize the printer. Is there some port or other add on the needs to be put on the other laptops so they can see the printer wireless when connected to the Terminal server? I disabled windows firewall just in case the was causing the problem, but it did not help. I have compared the working laptop with the ones that do not recognize the wireless printer through rdp, and everything looks the same. Help!
