Terminal services printing

Posted on 2006-05-04

When I connect to a Windows 2003 server, the printers installed on my computer do not appear in my terminal services session, even though I have the option checked in the Remote Desktop application.  I looked at Microsoft's help and created a registry key for FilterQueueType to FFFFFFFF, but that did not fix the problem.  Any suggestions?

    Hi christopher_perry,

    do you have any terminal service GPO's being applied? you may also need to install the drivers for the printers that you are trying to have connect

    I wasn't aware that the printer drivers needed to be installed on the server.  Thanks for the advice.
