need terminal server expert for printer redirect problem



Here is my setup. I have a LAN with 5 workstations and a single printer
connected to a HP print server. All 5 workstations connect to a remote
server using separate terminal sessions. What is the best way to set
this up so that I can get the printer to redirect and be available to
all the workstations during a client session.

If the workstations have a connection to the shared printer, and
printer redirection is enabled on both the Terminal Server and the
rdp clients, and they run the latest rdp client, then the printer
should be redirected automatically in the client sessions.

If it doesn't, you have to make sure that you map the printer driver
on the client to a native driver on the server. Use the EventLog on
the TS to check if the server is missing the appropriate driver.
