HI

We need to run an application that it uses a mini printer Epson TM-T88IV, the issue is that we need to use it under Terminal Server so windows server 2003 drivers are required.

Thanks in advance

sensored2008:

The printer initially does not come with the drivers, you have to register at the epson website and after that you are redirected to the correct place to download them, but those drivers are just XP and Vista compatible.

I have found a couple of solutions:

1. Using the driver of TM88III on both, the pc using XP and the server 2003 with TS session.
2. It seems that the printer is compatible using a Generic/Text Printer.

I'm having trouble getting an Epson NX300 all-in-one to print on a Windows 2003 Terminal Server via Word 2003. It prints web pages and Notepad docs just fine, seems to only bog down in Word.

So, knowing that Epson doesn't write drivers for Server 2003, I tried the Generic/Text Printer suggested above. It works like a champ, but not in color!

By the way, I've had very good results with the Generic/Text Printer with the Epson TM88III type of receipt printers, but I get no advanced options, such as to modify the paper cutting.

Oh Epson,  oh Epson! When will you support Windows Server 2003? I buy Star Micronics now for receipt printers, and I love the results. The Star driver utilities rock!

I have some driver files and a guide that Epson sent to me, how could I attach them to this post? (according to the attaching file system those files are not allowed)
