Scenario:
2008r2 Server with .net3.5
XPSP3 with .net 3.5
No domain set up at remote site, workgroup
No domain at local site

I have disabled easy print on server and have set the fallback printer policy.
I log in via rdp to the server and the printer is redirected but I need to change the driver.
The advanced options are greyed out so I cannot change the driver.
I think this might be a permission based problem but cant get it working?

It is a redirected printer so it does not exist on the server until redirected

Your are correct

Unfortunately RDP has it's limits.
An on-site visit will fix the driver issue for sure

I have tried to log into multiple servers and they all seem to have the same problem.
You cannot change the redirected printer settings in the remote session.
You can change the owner and give yourself access , but the settings change back when you log out.
