2008 Server Printer Redirection
Posted on 2011-10-19
I'm having a problem with a terminal server of ours, we have 15 users that dial into this server and they all use the printer redirection feature.
90% of the users can print to their local printer when logged into the remote server but a few can't, the problems are these:-
1) one user's PC wont show any redirected printers at all when he is connected to the remote server, I have checked all the RDP settings on the local pc and they are correct.
2) Two users are having trouble printing to their local printers on the remote server, they are showing in the print menu but when they print anything its all in symbols.
All of the printers are using the Terminal Services Easy Print driver and I think that's the problems with some printers.
I have downloaded the printer drivers to the server in x64 and x32 but when they connect again to the server its still showing the TS easy print driver.
I have also tried changning this one the remote server but still no luck

Is anyone else having this problem?
