Print to Macintosh printer from Terminal Server session - help!

(I also posted in microsoft.public.win2000.termserv.clients as I wasn't sure
which group to use).

First let me say I am not a Macintosh expert by any means, so detailed help
would be appreciated.

The Mac user (OS-X) has an Epson C62 printer attached to her Macintosh. She
needs to be able to print to it from her Terminal Server session. The user
makes a VPN connection to the network, then launches her TS session (all via
broadband Internet - no modem dialing).

TS Server is Windows 2003 and is a member of a Windows 2003 domain. Printer
Services for Macintosh and AppleTalk protocol are installed.

What are the steps needed to make the TS session communicate with her
printer?

Note: for all the Windows TS session clients, printing is working great.

Thanks for any pointers!

Hi Russ!

If your user is using the RDC software from Microsoft, then she's probably
out of luck with the type of printer she's using.

Printing requires a Postscript capable printer be attached to the Mac before
the Windows server will be able to recoginize it.

You can read more by reading the Help menu for RDC.

Hope this helps! bill
