Remote Desktop Microsoft Certified Printers

I am trying to find on Microsoft's web site where they list Remote Desktop Server Certified printers.  
I am aware of the Microsoft Catalog Site:
https://www.windowsservercatalog.com/default.aspx

This site lists printers that are compatible with Windows 2012 R2 for example, but it does not list the ones that have also been certified for RDS(Terminal Server).

It has been several years since I looked at it but Microsoft used to have a designation for Windows Certified and another designation for Terminal Server certified, and I think they charged printer vendors more money to do a Terminal Server certification.

Does anyone know where I can find these Microsoft Terminal Server Printer Certifications?  Thanks in advance!  :-)

Did you try look into this Microsoft catalog ?
This is list of WHQL certified by Microsoft printers, so all of this drivers was tested with all Microsoft products.

Thanks for the response.  Yes that is the link that I put in my question.  It only shows Windows Certified printers, but I can't find anywhere in it that it lists Terminal Server (RDS) certified printers.

No if printers are certified by WHQL then they working in TS too.

If you have problem maybe you not doing this right ?
I've never get problem with WHQL printer on any TS and I use TS since Windows 2003

Always I'm installing all available drivers for all guests OS and port 9100 is open for printer communication.

I've never got any problem with it.

We are very familiar with terminal services as we support upwards of 50 of them.  We definitely have run into drivers that work fine on a file server but have one problem or another on a terminal server.  If you look at HP's Quickspecs for a printer, if it is Terminal Server compatible then HP lists that.  If it isn't then they don't list that.  They do have less expensive printers that are compatible with Windows Servers but not Terminal Server.  I assume they do this to decrease the cost since Microsoft charges a fee to have a printer driver certified.  Sometimes the driver may actually work on a terminal server but HP only supports it if their driver says it is terminal server compatible.  

I'm hoping to find a page on Microsoft's web site that lists which printers they have tested and certified with terminal services since terminal services is more demanding than a file & print server.  Thanks for the input!

AFAIK once M$ introduced EasyPrint with Win2k8 R2 they dropped providing a separate RDS Certification.  If it was Certified for 2008R2 it was also certified for Remote Desktop Support.  Since then the hardware certifications have moved to the Server Catalog

Do you know if Microsoft tests Terminal Services compatibility these days when they do a printer cert?  When you go to the WHQL area of the Microsoft website there is surprisingly little info on Terminal Services (RDS) .

No, mainly because the introduction of EasyPrint.  If you're worried about manufacturer support nowadays you'll need to go to their separate TS/Citrix lists :(

I hadn't thought about the Citrix list.  I guess by default they are certifying Terminal Services when they certify a printer.
