Printing to Network Printer via Network Printer on Local Machine

Post by QlNjaG1lbH » Fri, 13 Jun 2008 03:15:00


We have multiple servers that we use remote desktop to connect to and
multiple users across the company that use these servers. We would like to
be able to configure the local machines network printers to be available when
connected to TS. We have the ability to connect to printers connected to
LPT1 but the problem is with nearly 500 users they can't all have local
printers. I know a lot of people recommend setting up the network printer on
the server, however we want to avoid that because we have over 15 network
printers in the home office and many others in field offices throughout the
country and don't want to set them all up on the server under each users
login. I have done some research but so far have not found a solution to
this so thought I would post here and see if anyone has done it or knows for
sure there is no way to do it.

Thank You

Which OS do you run on the TS?
Which OS and rdp client version do you run on the clients?

If the clients run at least the rdp client which comes with Windows
2003 (located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\clients\tsclient\win32
\msrdpcli.msi on the server), then network printers which are
defined on the client are automatically redirected into the TS
session.
