Remote Printing vis RDP - Win XP & Win7
Posted on 2014-02-04
We currently have a Win XP system with a database app in office 1. Office 2 has remote access via RDP from two Pc's (XP & Win7 and can print reports from the DB app on their local printers in Office 2.
I just installed a new Brother MFC 9970CDW laser printer in office 2 and it works perfect for local printing. I tried setting it up so those remote users can log into office 1 via rdp and print their reports on the new laser printer in office 2. I logged into the Pc in the main office and installed the new laser printer's driver on that pc using port LPT2. I chose LPT2 because another printer is on LPT1. After installing the driver we could not print a small document remotely like we could before.
How to I fix the remote printing?
