Using a Brother USB printer on an HP thin client

Hello everyone - I am trying to configure a Brother Intellifax 2820 to work with an RDP connection on an HP T5135 thin client.

From the thin client's settings window, I've added a new printer. Both a name and port have been set for the printer. When I click the "Test printer" button, a blank page comes out.

So, this tells me it sees the printer, and perhaps there is just some sort of communication problem? How do I specify a driver for the printer? Do I need to specify a driver?

Also, when connecting to the WIndows server from the thin client, the printer does show in the Printer list. However, if I try to print to it, nothing happens and the queue empties itself after about 30 seconds.

Thanks in advance.

Matthew

Yes you need a driver.
As to which one or how, I dunno. - You didn't specify an Operating System.

Sorry - the RDP operating system is Windows Server 2003. I ended up just buying a network printer, though. Thanks for the help.
