SBS 2008 RWW no Printer Access

Hi All

I have an issue at the moment surrounding Remote Web Workspace.

I have 4 Windows 7 64 Bit Home Premium Machines connecting into a SBS 2008 Workspace.  From here they then connect to 4 individual 32 bit Windows XP machines.  All works fine with regards to that.  The users can use them as if they were sat in front of the Windows XP machines fine.

All 4 Win7 machines are connected to a HP 1320N printer in one office and when they connect to the Remote Web Workspace they are selecting the options to take accross their local "Clipboard" and "Printers"  

However, in their remote session, the printer is not available whatsoever.  I know they have connectivity to it as they can print to it no problem "outside" of their remote session.

Any ideas

Cheers

You need to install the printer driver HP1320N on the SBS 2008 because the printing is processed by the server

When you say Printer driver, will this be the driver for the Win 7 o/s / devices?

The ones for XP are already installed on there?

If you mean Remote Web Workplace then you need to have identicle drivers on the XP and windows 7 machine, HP 1320N PCL 5e for example on them both.  If the names don't match you can't print to it.  In the past I have used the Universal driver on both so that the names match.

The problems with reply email signatures

Do you wish that you could place an email signature under a reply? Well, unfortunately, you can't. That great Exchange/Office 365 signature you've created will just appear at the bottom of an email chain. What a pain! Is there really no way to solve this? Well, there might be...

I have installed the universal drivers as mentioned, on all machines.  64 bit drivers on Win7, SBS 2k8 and on the Win XP machine, and still having no joy.  

With the XP machine being 32 bit, do I also need to install the 32 bit versions on all machines as well?

Hello,

No you don't need the 32 bit version on all machines.

Can you print to the Universal driver direct from the Windows 7 machine?
If you look in the printe server properties on both the XP and Windows 7 machines does the driver name appear exactly the same?
Can you see the printer in your RWW session now, or are you still not getting any printers?

Hi Tonyperth

I can print direct to the printer using the Windows 7 machine (using Universal Printer Driver PCL5), I can also connect to the SBS2k8 machine and the printer is taken accross to that "remote" machine and print to my local printer no problems.  It is also using the Universal Prinet Driver PCL5.

I have resolved the issue now, but I have had to install the 32 bit HP Universal Printer Driver PCL5 on the Windows XP machines to get them to appear via the remote session, and the printing works fine now.
