hi, i have a hp photosmart c309a and a hp deskjet f2180.
I need to use these 2 printer on a terminal server (2003), i went onto hp's website, with which there isn't an option for a 2003 download for either printer.
Do you now if there is a universal printer driver i can use ?

thanks

Usually - but not always - the driver for Windows XP Pro will work just fine on Server 2003. Assuming you haven't already tried that, of course.

Doesn't look like either of those models are supported in a Terminal Services environment probably because they use GDI printing.

See the current list of HP printers supported in Citrix which applies equally to TS

Both are GDI....and neither have drivers for any server os.
I'm guessing they were never designed for workgroup printing?

2003 may accept the driver but use the remote printing so that the job is hopefully rastered locally .
