HP P2014 and terminal server

Anyone have any success getting an HP P2014 to work through terminal server (2003)?
I installed the drivers on the server, everything looks good. When the user logs in, it creates the local printer for them on the server, everything looks good. But when you try to print the print job just sits in the print queue. Eventually it will change to "deleting" in the print queue. Nothing ever prints. I have tried connecting the printer to the local workstation via parallel and usb cables and get the same result. Can't even do a test print.  

Thanks.

In theory at least the P2014 (or any of the P2010 range) should work in a TS environment.
They will only work with PCL drivers
Because it's host-based make sure bidirectional support is switched off both at the client and server end and check you have the latest drivers on both machines.

I was using the host based drivers. I will try the PCL drivers and see what happens.

greetings

there is a whitepaper on citrix and hp printers and it says the 2014 is only supported with pcl drivers.

PCL driver was the answer. Actually there is no PCL driver for the 2014, I had to use the "2010 series" PCL driver. That's why I didn't originally see it. If you goto the 2014 on HP's website the only option you get is host based drivers.

Thanks.
