I have a user who works from home over Remote Desktop. The printer currently purchased was an HP LaserJet P1006. The issue that has been happening ever since the drivers were installed on the server and the client are that users' printers are being stuck in sessions which I cannot remove unless I reboot the server. Also the user is unable to print to the printer when working over TS. Does anyone have any ideas? The printer does show up because it is shared on the client's computer, and brought over using the local resources in the options for Remote Desktop. Also I spoke with HP and I disabled bi-directional support on the client's machine. Server side printers are still becoming stuck in session. The printer is connected to a USB port on the user's client, and coming through on an open TS port for example TS001 PRN1 User Laptop.

Most of the problems with RDP printing are due to bad drivers.  There are only a few windows certified printer drivers for RDP.  I would suggest using a standard laserjet4 print driver on the SERVER.  This should take care of both issues.
