laserjet 1300 printing via ts 2003

I have a usb laserjet 1300 printer setup on an xp pc. I installed the drivers for the 1300 (universal and pcl 5) on the 2003 ts using the server properties in printers and faxes. still the 1300 does not appear when I RDP into the server. the rdp settings are ok and checked for printers. I tested this on a windows 7 machine and only the fax and xps document writer show up on the ts. Is there something else I need to consider? thanks

That probably fixed it because the 1100 driver was installed on the terminal server. In order for redirected printers to show up on the terminal server, the printer on the PC has to be installed using a driver with the exact same name as one on the server.

For example, say only the "hp laserjet 1300 series PCL" is installed on the terminal server, but the name of the driver used on the PC is:  "HP LaserJet 1300 Series PCL 5e."  Since there isn't a matching driver on the terminal server, the printer won't be redirected and you will get a Event ID 1111 error in the system event log telling you something like:  "The driver HP LaserJet 1300 Series PCL 5e for Printer XYZ is not recognized.  Please, contact your system administrator to install the correct driver."

The fix is to use a driver on the PC that has the same name as one installed on the terminal server.

I hope this helps.

Yes you are right the 1100 drive was installed already on the ts, so the user set the local printer up with the 1100 drive and it worked fine event though its a 1300 printer
