You must make sure that the terminal Server has the EXACT same Driver as the Local Client Computer that is trying to use the Term Server. Example: So if you have
Canon iR7086-7105-S2 PS Ver2.0 you need to have same on both computers. ver1.5 wont work. Understand?

The printer I am having issues with is a MFP.
I tried a basic printer that takes a universal driver and it works fine.  Was easier to install the same driver on the server and pc
Thanks
