I am attempting to figure out how much bandwidth I will need to support many RDP sessions with printing. I am trying to have about 20 users log into a terminal server and access an application and print to it . is there some official document about this ?

Mirosoft are very coy about this - with good reason - it's rather like "how long is a length of string".

An RDP session with the keyboard, mouse and screen idle will take virtually no bandwidth - just some keep-alive packets.  A session with a lot of moving graphics can take 100s of k bits per second.

If you average out average applications over a long enough period, you should expect somewhere arounf 30 kbps per session, i.e around 660kbps for your 20 users.

But, to answer your exact question: I've never seen any official document or calculator for RDP bandwidth.
