Hi guys,

I'm a bit of a newb at this but I set up Server 2008 R2 with remote desktop services for all users to log in to their own profiles (using AD to authenticate).

I've noticed that redirected printers are not working. The details:

1) The redirected printers show up in the terminal session
2) Print jobs "go through" but there is no actual response on the printer itself.

I suspect that it has something to do with permissions or GPO somewhere, but I'm not sure where to look.

If you can provide me with some troubleshooting steps, it would be greatly appreciated!
