"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The P1006 is a GDI printer (i.e. no built-in intelligence, and requires Windows' graphics engine to convert the page to pixels). GDI printers are designed to operate direct from a PC.

Your chances range from slim to none. Invest in a more expensive printer that suppoprts PCL or PostScript.

Thank you for answering my question.  Do you happen to have a recommendation for an inexpensive HP laser printer that is TS compatible?  It is only being used by a single user.
Something like the P2015 should work fine.

Thanks for that, Claudio. At least it supports my suggestion, although there are cheaper ones like the 1015 that should work too.

Great job, thanks for all the information!
Sorry, but the answer was wrong as I was able to easily install/add a HP P1006 today to a remote user's system, replacing a failed HP LJ 1200, and have the new printer successfully print.  I took care to make sure that supplied PCL 5 drivers were loaded for the printer as well and do note that without those you wouldn't be able to print.  HP supplied the PCL 5 drivers on the installation CD, so adding them in was a snap.  User was connect to a Win2003 server, via Citrix.
I'm currently installing a P1006 on a local PC and attempting to print via Remote Web Workplace and a remote PC

The PC being connected to has had the drivers installed from the HP LaserJet Full Feature Software and Driver package direct to Print Server Properties - Add Driver

This let the printer set itself up on login.
However only one job would print successfully before a print spooler restart was required on the local machine.

If vtpcwizard suggestion is anything to go by, the CD sounds like a requirement rather than using the downloaded drivers.
I have installed the PCL 5 print drivers for this printer and it will not print locally with those drivers.
