I have a new customer and this office (mostly Windows 7 workstations) is a remote office which remotes into a Windows 2003 server using that version of Terminal Services. When a user from this office printers, it's through the generated printers from these sessions. Most of the printers are USB only and are shared through the PC making the connection.
Users try to print through printers from other user sessions which causes problems as those sessions become disconnected over time. I've thought about setting up a printer on the remote server using the external IP number of this office and allow the printing to work through the router. But I wondered if there was a better way? I'm not a terminal services expert and in other software I found when you go to print, it can generate the local printer dialog to pop up for the user in the local session. But I am sure Windows Terminal Services doesn't support this. Maybe there is some software that will work with it and help this along? Or does anyone have any other ideas on what to do?
