Just installed a Windows 2008 R2 server as a terminal server. It's a member server; part of the domain, but not a DC. Part of the idea behind this was to use the new Easy Print feature, which allows printing through the RDP session to whatever printer I have on my local machine, including printers on my LAN. This couldn't be done before, so I'm very excited to use it.
I've tested it with my Canon ImageCLASS MF4370dn, from my Windows 7 PC, and it works great!
Unfortunately, one of my clients users' is having problems. They're using Windows XP SP3, with a shared HP LaserJet 2420. This printer works fine for local printing. But when I select it for printing through the RDP session, it's as if the printer is trying to print about 1/4" to the left of where it's supposed to. The margins are off or something. And the documents that they're trying to print - which are supposed to print right at the left margin - come out with a couple of letters missing, and everything else moved slightly over to the left. I verified this by printing a Test Page from both the local print driver, and the Easy Print redirector driver. The local one prints properly. The terminal server prints slightly to the left.
I can't find an option in the printer driver to permit me to set a margin, and I shouldn't really have to. It seems like something's going wrong in the transfer. Anyone know anything about this? How to fix it?
