Apple Mac Powerbook G4 or G5 on OSX 10.2 RDP connection to WIndows Xp machine on external network
Posted on 2006-10-27
I am having a problem with a client's Mac.
We have installed Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac from Microsofts website to enable us to RDP into an XP machine on an external network. This is working fine, however we need to share local resources and in particular the printers. The MAC has a local printer attached via USB however when we connect to the XP machine this does not appear in the printer list. The printers that do appear are all on the XP machines side which are at another location and the office with the MAC needs to be able to print in their office!!!
Coming off RDP the Mac prints fine to the local printer attached. It appears to be only a problem when on remote desktop.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for 500 points.
Thanks in anticipation
