Printing via Remote Desktop / Terminal Services to a Host-Based non-PCL printer
Posted on 2009-03-31
Have you found (and reliably used) a software or "universal driver" solution for printing to non-PCL, host-based printers via Terminal Services?
Got a company with a bunch of sales people connecting to a Terminal Server, who usually have home-grade, host-based, non-PCL printers that they'd like to print to.
Historically, the company purchased better printers for the salespeople and sent them to their homes, but moving forward, I'd like to stop that practice, and maybe address it by having a single driver on the server, which will emulate and print to whatever printers they might have.
I'm building a quote for a complete network overhaul / face lift if you may, and I'd like to include a solution to address this. The new setup will include SBS 2008, complemented by a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server.
Links, ideas or known solutions to this sort of an issue would be much appreciated!
