RDP not bringing over Local Network Printer
Posted on 2009-05-13
I am attempting to connect a printer to a Windows 2003 Terminal Server. I have the same version driver on the host and server. On the host (desktop) side I've created a printer. During the creation, I created a tcp/ip port for the printer to print to. I connect from a remote location through a T1 to my Windows 2003 server from the users network to my network. The printer doesn't come over. If Iog off the session go to the properties of the printer I crated on the Host, change the port to LPT1 and start a new session, the printer comes over. Has anyone ran into this issue yet?
I come back to my office, create the same solution, and get the same results on my local network. It is only affected with the local ports on the local client. There are two users at the remote location. The user that is having the trouble has a new desktop running XP with the latest fixes. The other user at the location is running Windows 2000, and is not having the issue. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks
