Windows server 2008 R2 RDS printer mapping

Hi all, remote desktop services, old TS, installed, printer mapping is enabled on RDS Machine, by oppening a RDP connection from a windows 7 machine, it maps all printers, but only prints in some printers.

I need some pointers on printers mapping on RDP 2008

You should see if it has the correct driver for the printer and if not install it.
Rds will try and use easy print in case of lacking drivers, but that will only get you so far...

so whats the best option? i heard something about tricerat is a 3rd party solution but looks like users have to install things in the local machine.

The best solution depends on the situation, if these are printers in remote offices you could just install drivers on the 2008 machine. But incase of different printers everyday this would be harder, but there are several 3d party apps that will help you with that. But they are never free...
