Terminal Services printer accepts print job and completes but the print job never prints out.
Posted on 2008-06-24
I am using Windows XP home and rdp to connect to a Terminal Server 2003 server. I have a Canon i455 printer connected locally via usb port. I have printer redirection enabled on the rdp client.
When I connect to the Terminal Server, the printer is mapped and uses the fallback driver. When I send a print job to the printer created in the TS session, the printer accepts the job and says it's printing the job. The job disappears as if completed but never prints to the local printer. No error is recorded on the server.
I initially tried printing using an HP Officejet 5500 series with the same results. I gave up on this model knowing the difficulties with HP Multifunction printers and assumed the issue was related to the HP 5500. Now I am wondering if there might be an issue on this particular PC that could be causing the printing not to work.
Norton Internet Security is on the PC but I tried all of this with the firewall disabled.
Any help is appreciated.
