We're trying to determine whether or not a specific redirected printer is using the Easy Print driver, or its default driver when printing.  Is there a way to determine this?

I know how to set up Easy print, but we need to check which driver this specific printer is ACTUALLY using.

Thanks!

Logon to the server using RDP, go to Devices and Printers, right-click on a redirected printer, choose Printer Properties, and inspect the Advance tab.  It will say "Remote Desktop Easy print" if it is using Easy Print in the driver listing.
