Last Modified: 2020-10-10

got a USB printer connected to widnows10 computer. printer works fine. I wanted to print from a 2012 server through rdp

steps I did:
1- enabled printers in rdp local resource option
2- added the printer driver pcl6 in server
 so when I rdp to the server, I can see the printer in the control panel- printer list. but if I print from server, it’s not printing

print from local computer it’s working. what am I missing or did wrong ? why it’s not printing from server through rdp
