RDP printing with a lexmark all-in-one
Posted on 2007-10-03
A Lexmark X2500 (all-in-one) is installed via USB on a Windows XP Home PC. Software is installed and all scanning/printing functions etc...are working. User connect in via RDP to work PC running XP Professional. Only the 2500 printer driver has been installed via START/PRINTERS, then FILE/SERVER PROPERTIES/DRIVERS tab....
A Lexmark dialog box comes up confirming the installation of the driver upon login to the remote machine (I'm not sure why), and the printer is auto-created. When print jobs are sent, however, the jobs stay in the queue on the remote pc and never come out on the home pc. I have turned on and off the windows firewall, to no avail.
Perhaps we need to use a different driver. Thats how we have resolved these issues with the HP all-in-ones.
I've asked lexmark, and they say they dont support remote printing with the lexmark printers. Quite lame, As I have 1 customer with 4 terminal servers and 15 lexmark lasers printing over RDP.
So, perhaps, maybe, one of the experts here can at least give me some troubleshooting steps, as I am somewhat, so far, dissapointed in all of you, and my subscription here.
