HP D2660 won't print from terminal server
Posted on 2010-04-05
I have a HP D2660 inkjet printer that I have a remote user wanting to print to from a windows 2003 R2 terminal server. We are having issues printing. It will print a test page but won't print in many other cases. HP says the printer does not support a PCL driver so it is not compatible with terminal servers. I know I have plenty of inkjet printers that my users are currently using. Is their a way to force this to work with a known working driver on a terminal server or is their a trick to getting it to work?
The issue is that when printing from Excel, for example, the job will hang and eventually fail. You will see it in the queue on the local computer but the file being spooled with just keep getting larger and larger for some reason. It just keeps growing in size until it fails. Then the user is unable to print b/c of the jammed print queue.
