Remoted Desktop with HP Officeject 8600 redirected does not work

Hello, I have a remote user that uses an application on an office PC. The remote user has a VPN connection and uses Remote Desktop to work on the system and wants to print to their local printer (redirected printer) which is an HP OfficeJet 8600.

It will not print.  We do not have an Officejet 8600 locally.

I have downloaded the drivers to the office system and performed the install up to connect later and finished the install.  I believe the driver is in the system reviewing it through printui /s /t2

Anyone have any ideas of how to resovle this issue of redirecting printers?

The users says it use to work at one time but we had other printer problems so I had to remove all drivers from the system, clear corrupt spooler files and reloaded all exisiting printers.

try to force the universal Printer Driver or substitute the Driver with a standard-Driver.
Somewhere is a file with a Printer-Driver-replacement-list for RDP.

Some Printers are not usable with Terminalservers. Installing and using many Drivers mostly reduce the stability of the System.

I ended up downloading the driver, running it so the program would extract the drivers and I used printui /s /t2 to add the drivers.  Once I did this it worked.

The driver needed to be loaded locally on the remote system, once I did this it worked.
