Windows SBS2011 server with remote web access enabled. Windows 7 PC can remote access and work nicely. having trouble setting up so can print to local (to Windows 7 PC) printer. I am told there is a more options that can be selected when chooseing a PC to connect to through RWA but I can't see that option. Local printers are connected via USB.

For remote printing to work the printer name and printer driver on each end have to match exactly.  If they don't you should see an error in the event logs that the TS printer is not recongized.  For some printers this can be a pain because you cannot install them unless the printer is present and attached via USB to the station/server.  For others, you can trick it by installing it on LPT1 or such.  When the printer is redirected it does not matter what the port is on the other end.

Is thinprint a better alternative to the Windows approach? Is there a better software solution?

Solved it!

Solved by clicking on the More Computers listing option below the PCs shown on the front page.

Then RDP options where I enabled copy and paste and save.

Now working
