I need to install multiple printers at a remote location which all of the users are using Winterms to remote into our corporate location using Terminal Server 2008 R2. I have one local printer setup and it works fine, when I install a the second printer it locally on the file and print server here with the WAN IP of the remote site it prints to the original printer. How can I differentiate the IP of the new printer so that it can be used? I am thinking I would have to assign it another port besides 9100 in the remote router.

Thanks in advance.

If the both printers are connected at the same time, obviously we also need to configure different ports for them

Makes sense but I am wondering will remote printing work over another port besides 9100?

i don't think there is dependency on port number 9100, you can use any number.
