We have a main office and a branch office in two states.  We have a server (Win 2008 R2) in the Main Office with certain software.  The branch office users use theses software too but how can we use these software  and print on the branch office printer.  Can someone give me a step by step instructions for installing of printer with redirection as someone had mentioned.

Do you have any VPN ?

There are usualy 2 scenarious.

1. Printer can be directly conected tu server usualy VPN and IP printer so printer is normaly instaled on server as network printer.

2. Normal redirection

In normal redirection you will instal the printer on user computer.

Then second step is to add compatibile printer drivers usualy x86 and x64 to on sever. Easy way how to do it is instal print server role and in managment console you have driver managment

After this you just simply check setting of RDP file there is resources and redirection in option and you will check that you have printers ticked and in more you can tick PnP debices for better support of usb printers.

Thats all
