We have a application that we use to run our hospital, Meditech. We access it via Proprietary Telnet client specifically developed by Meditech.
I specifically need to print reports that can not be scheduled. Every morning I print a series of reports for some of the departments. The printer is local to the PC at work.
Here is the issue: I log into a pc at work via VPN (Virtual Private Network) using Microsoft's RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). As long as I first log into the PC while at work and print some reports, everything works fine. I can then go home and RDP into the PC and get the console desktop and print more reports. Works !
What does not work: If the PC at work is power cycled and then I RDP in and print reports, nothing ever shows up !? I then physically go into work log-on to the console and print, Works. I can now go back home or RDP in and print (does not matter where I cam, just not on the console) and print, works ?!
Why do I first have to log-in to the physical console and print before I can log-in via RDP and print ?
What does logging in via the console initialize that then allows me to print via RDP ?
Any help is appreciated.
