I have a user who RDPs into the citrix server at work, who would like to print to her local printer at home over the RDP connection. From my experience their local printer attaches and becomes the default printer automatically. However with this user when she logs in and you check printers you see Printer (on session 2) and also Printer (on session 2) copy 1. And if you log her out and back in you then see copy 1 and copy 2 and the original. If you try to delete the printers from the user's connection OR through administrator RDP session into the same server I am presented with the message "either the printer name was typed incorrectly or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server".
I have only gotten this user's printer to attach correctly once, I fully logged her out, checked printers on server from administrator credentials and the user's printers were gone, then I logged her in and her local printer attached and was the default for her. However after a time her session timed out and reconnecting to the session her printer was no longer default and the copy 2 printer was there (clicking on either presented the same error message).
Terminal services configuration is set up to allow local printers to attach, and I got it to work once. I did change the setting to never time out connections to avoid the issue. But I can't seem to get her local printer to attach again. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
