Hello ict-torquilclark,

Terminal Services add Printer Drivers

1. Download and Extract the Printer drivers to a folder on the TS Server.
2. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Printers and Fax's
3. File > Server Properties.
4. Printers > Add

Follow onscreen prompts

Log off the client and log back on again (NB it can take a few seconds to map the printer properly be patient.)

Regards,

PeteLong
