Hewlett Packard and Terminal Services

I need to know if anyone can tell me if one of the following USB printers will work with a terminal session? HP LJ 1018, 1020, 1022 or a P1006

I am not a terminal services expert so I am not sure how much this will help.  I can tell you that all of those printers depend on the host for the "language."  They would be considered GUI or Host-based printers.  If a terminal session won't work with those types of printers then none of the ones you listed should work.

If this doesn't completely help let me know or feel free to give this a little more time.  There are some other great printer experts that may have terminal services experience too.  I can even add a terminal services zone to this question if you want (I am a zone advisor).  Let me know which zone if you have a preference.  If you have a question about what I said or need more info let me know.  I'll be happy to provide what I can. :)

Found from HP that the laserjet P1505N was the best choice for my solution with terminal services as it is support by microsoft on terminal services. Thanks for the suggestion.

I have a follow up comment to that and don't want to forget to post it later.  Since I am a zone advisor and the only participant I will post it now and then act on your request to PAQ/refund this.  I do not object to your choice to close this.

That model is NOT a GUI or host based printer.  That probably was the key to being compatible with Terminal Services.  That printer (the network model only) does support the PCL language.  I am glad you got a suggestion from MS and found a printer that worked but I wanted to tie this back to what I mentioned.  It will also hopefully help others once the P1505n is off the market to find their own compatible, inexpensive laser printer.  From what you said in your last post it seems to me that part of my comment may have even got you started looking at it but since you are choosing PAQ/refund I will assume that wasn't the case.  I am glad you got it working and thanks for the details on the solution.
