  • Remote Desktop Printer in windows 2003

    Hello All,

    I have setup a windows 2008 terminal Server, Whenever i tried to access it from Windows XP , i am able to connect it. When I print , it is not redirected to mine local printer. I tried to search on GOOGLE but no luck. In one Microsoft article, they said i have to create a registry key which is pointed to some .inf file. but still not able to understand how to do that. Is someone else face this problem ????

    I tried this :

    Or is any solution for this..

    Thanks a lot.

    What printer are you using?

    Which bits of the technet article are you having problems with -- it looks straightforward enough. You will need an appropriate printer driver (use Vista if there is nothing for Server 2008 ), either 32 or 64 bit depending on your server

        And are the relevant drivers installed on the server? If you look at the event logs on the server, are there any errors about unknown printer drivers?
