XP SP3 to Win 2008R2 Easy Print
Posted on 2012-03-18
Windows 2008R2 server with Remote Desktop Services.
Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 clients are at another remote site using RDP v6.1.
When remote clients using their application print a job sheet (internal document) to their local printer using Easy Print it takes more than 5 minutes and seems to be about 2mb+ in size.
This occurs an HP Laserjet 4250 and also Kyocera Mita KM4035 printers.
Doing a test using the old Windows 2003 Server and TS, it took 0.1 second and the file was 64k. I noted that on this Windows 2003 Server, the printers were setup using a default set of drivers for a "HP Deskjet 500"
Should we disable Easy print?
