Cannot print to network printer from remote session
Posted on 2012-09-06
I have a user that connects to a remote server using Remote Desktop Connection (RDP). The remote connection is setup to use printers in the Local Resources tab. All of the printers on the user's local machine are network printers, all on the same print server. User's computer is running Windows 7.
The user can print to all network printers when working locally off of her computer. When she connects to the remote server, she can print to all network printers except one. The printer appears to be created successfully on the remote server, but she is not able to print to this one printer. I didn't have time today to see if other users are able to print to this one printer - I'll check that tomorrow.
I deleted and re-created the printer on the print server. I'm able to print to the printer from the print server. She was able to print locally after re-creating the printer on her computer. But it fails once trying to print through the remote server.
