Printing from 2008 R2 RDP Server (Terminal Server)

I have a user with an HP P2035 connected locally via USB.  She connects to QuickBooks via an RDP Session to our Terminal Server at a Data Center.  Until 2 days ago, there was no problem printing from the RDP Session to the local printer.  Now she can't print from the RDP session (not QB, not Word, not anything).  She has no issue printing locally to the HP, just the print jobs from the TS Session.  I have ripped the printer out locally and reinstalled. I have installed onto the Terminal Server.  Still nothing.  I am going nuts.  Please Help.
thanks
Jon

The HP LaserJet P2035 uses a host based print driver which isn't supported in a remote desktop environment. I would try a PCL driver for a closely related printer such as the HP LaserJet P2015 PCL 5 (the P2035 does NOT support the PCL 6 printer language). Or, you could go with the PCL 5 version of the HP Universal Print Driver or UPD.

For more information on HP printer support in terminal services & Citrix servers:
http://h71028.www7.hp.com/ERC/downloads/4AA0-8465ENW.pdf

That document states on page 9 that the P2035 isn't supported, but we got that model to work without any issues using a PCL 5 driver (either for the P2015 or the UPD).

Thanks Spike99.  I used the UPD PCL5 and everything went 5x5.  Working again.  I am adding the solution to my KB's and slapped a label on the printer to remind me just in case it goes south ever again.  I appreciate the assist.
Thanks again,
Jon
