I have a Server 2008 terminal server and client machines that are windows 7 these are laptops that are used remotely, they are using a kyocera FS-1320D printers setup as individual a4 and a5 printers but only 1 physical printer, when connecting to the terminal server it only redirects the default printer e.g If A5 is default will redirect this and not the
A4 printer

I have checked the settings and group policy and cant find any reason as to why only the default printer is redirected instead of all printers

Hi, while taking RDP of the terminal server follow the below actions,

After typing mstsc click ok A pop-up window will open to enter computer name in that window you'll be able to see Options button click on it then click on local resources tab->then enable the check box for printers under local devices and resources.

Now you will be able to see all the printers in the terminal server session.

Hey There

That tick box is checked but still only redirects a single printer being the default and i need it to redirect all active printers even if its not the default

Thanks in advance

I have always had issues with remote and local printers using RDP.  I finally settled on a product called Net2printer RDP.  It is easy to set up and has yet to not work for me reliably.  I have been using it about 10 years.
