I'm remoting in through Sonicwall VPN. I have installed my home printer driver on remote machine. Printer is a Brother MFC-6490CW. I can send jobs from the remote machine to the queue on the client. The printer is "Receiving data". There is no error. The job leaves the queue as if it has printed, but never actually prints.

Printer works fine when printing locally.

Are you certain the MFC-6490CW print device isn't mapped to the wrong port? You can have multple print devices configured for the same port. That would explain why the print job is clearing the queue, but nothing is printing on your printer.

First of all, what are the OSs on the local computer where the printer is connected to and on the remote computer?
@diprajbasu: no need to open any of these as he is trying to print over RDP.

I'm not working remotely to test this at the moment, but will try later. OS on client is XP. OS on remote computer is Windows 7.

If the Windows 7 machine is Ultimate or Enterprise you can use Easy Print what means no need for ANY driver on the remote PC.
The client (local PC) must have the LATEST RDP client AND .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 in this case.
If it is NOT Ultimate/Enterprise then you need the EXACT same driver on both ends but even in that case it does NOT mean it will work as RDP printing redirection may not work with all printers, especially host based ones.
Final thing, check for permissions on the remote PC Spool directory.

My printer is connected to the client machine on USB001. I don't see this port on the remote machine. Port PRN6 is the port I've used that sends the job to the queue on the client. I've tried all the other active ports that are available for selection on the remote machine.

I'm running Windows 7 Professional, so it doesn't sound like Easy Print is an option.

The solution does look like it's going to be easy print once we have a Server 2008 up and running. Thanks.
