Remote Printing Server 2012

We are using the new way of TS on Windows 2012 but printing is still slow on the remote end as we have to print some long documents etc.

Is there any better way other than the Microsoft way of delivering printing to the remote printer as fast or as near as damn it as if it was printed locally

I am afraid not, the delay is due to the slow link.  The internet connection may be 1/100th of that of a LAN.  There are add-ons for printing such as ThinPrint, but they will not perform any faster.

If you are on a WAN and fast printing is critical to your business then you can think of other technology protocols performing better over the WAN than Microsoft's RDP protocol. Citrix's ICA protocol performs much better over the WAN and alongside HDX and several of its technologies like branch repeater can provide you satisfactory results. But, you have to weigh the tradeoff of the added cost, as Citrix will come with the additional cost of its own licenses in addition to Microsoft's RD licenses.

I have seen some posts regarding the new way TS Print works and they all have the same problem. It gets worse when printing to Multi Function devices so I may as some have said go back to the old way of doing it and install the drivers on each end. Some posts say this improved speed no end.

We switched to a Cloud based version of Exchange to solve this one
