Printing from Terminal Server to local printer
Posted on 2008-06-17
I am currently experiencing a weird problem printing from a clients Terminal Server session to his local printer.
All drivers are installed, his printer maps to his session.
When logged on as administrator on the Terminal Server, print jobs sent go through to his local printer but hang for a while but do eventually go through. This is the case 80% of the time but the print job can just stay in the queue until I restart the print spooler on the server.
When logged on as the client, even after joining him to the same groups as administrator I get weird problems.
1) When sending the print, the print job hangs on the print queue of his printer on the server and stays there until I restart the print spooler on the server
2) After restarting the print spooler it goes through to his local queue but hangs for around 1-2 minutes then prints or sometimes just stays there
3) IF prints get to his local printer fine, thousands of "redirected printer doc" appear on his print queue
The drivers on the local machine are matched with the servers
Other clients can print fine remotely
