Printing Locally via Remote Dekstop over VPN
Posted on 2008-10-29
I don't seem to be the only one having this problem, but all the solutions posted so far don't work.
I have employees accessing remote desktop over VPN who would like to be able to print at my restaurant. The server is located in the home-office, and at the restaurant there are 5 client computers and an HP LaserJet P1006 connected via USB. That printer is shared with all other computers on the network, and everyone can print fine locally only.
It sometimes lets you print via terminal services, but not usually. As well, you never know where in the hell to print as there is about 40 printers showing up in the remote desktop server "Printers and Faxes"
The correct drivers are installed on the server.
By the way, we also have a Network Ready HP Color Laser CM1017 at the home office. Everyone seems to be able to print to this no matter where they are (restaurant, home, or coffee shop).
I'm knee-deep into this. Will buying a network ready printer for the restaurant cure my woes?
