Print Quality and Speed Loss Using Terminal Server

I have a custom application running on a Windows 2003 Server SP2 and some users run the application using Terminal Services. The print quality of the reports in the TS sessions is poor with letters running together. When the application is not run through TS the print quality is good. I have tried different fonts in the applicaton but this does not improve it. We are also using ThinPrint and Konect to manage the thin client sessions and printer mappings. I don't know if these utilities override the print drivers somehow or why the text quality is so poor?
Any help to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry to be so long in responding.
I have the printers and drivers installed as an Okidata ML 184 and a Okidata ML 590 in the 2nd printer. Maybe the Okidata is not a common enough make so I will try to install them with the drivers for an Epson 2550 as that was what I once had to do to get it to use custom page lengths.

I was told by Okidata to install IBM Proprinter III drivers and test. Will try as soon as I can get back to site then I will hopefully be able to close the question.

I wasn't able to test this for a long time. I installed an IBM Proprinter III driver and it worked. It was like you said it needed a more common printer driver to be redirected properly in Terminal Services.
Sorry for the long time lag.
