Barcode font prints as wingdings in Terminal Server

Hello,

I am using the font "Free 3 of 9" to print barcodes.
It's all printing good while running locally but when I connect through a Terminal Server it prints as wingdings (the font is installed on the Terminal Server since I can see the page preview good).

Any idea what I should do?

Thank you,
Elad.

Is the font installed on the system you are connecting to the terminal server with?

Yes, since the page preview is working fine.

I think the page preview is using the font on your computer, not the server.

spot on with above answer. the font must be installed on the system that the printer looks to or will use a default font. copy the font contained in the font directory under windows to same directory location on the local to printer machine. Alternativley get a network printer. best of luck
