Terminal Server Printing Solution
Posted on 2014-09-15
We currently have a software package which works via a terminal server setup with users logging into the server with RDP connections to use the software. This is working very well for us, except for one thing - printing.
Currently users are able to print by manually installing the exact printer driver as the client on the machine & then using the terminal server virtual ports to spool the document to the printer on the client's side. Long story short - this environment will not be suitable when hosting for multiple companies on this software package. I have user software called AADServer & owncloud to sync documents automatically to the client once someone prints, but this creates a pdf file which then is put between possibly hundreds of other print jobs.
We are looking for a solution to print, sync to the client automatically & then open the completed document in a pdf reader/print preview window, where the user can then print as per usual.
Does anybody know of software like this or does anybody have any expert tips to give if we were to write something custom to do what we want to achieve?
