Adding a printer to remote office that uses RDS
Posted on 2013-01-21
We have a main office with a TCP/IP printer. The printer is currently on the same LAN as the firms RDS (Terminal Server). The printer is going to be moved to a remote office.
The goal is for users of the RDS server be able to print to the printer once it's been moved to the remote office. What's the best way of doing this.
At present there is no site to site VPN and the remote office has the same 192.168.1/24 network. I was thinking that I could install the printer locally on the users in the remote office's Windows 7 machine then allow printer redirection to allow the RDS Server see the printer. Is that the easiest method. I've seen other guys change remote network ID, setup a site to site VPN and print that way but I want to minimize work deploying this.
