Print to Macintosh printer from Terminal Server session - help


R

Russ Goodwin

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!

I'm not familiar with the limitations of the Remote Desktop Client for MacOSX, but if it doesn't support printer redirection, you can check out HobSoft.com or RDesktop.org for alternative RDP clients. Check the System Event log on the terminal server for 1111 errors to see if there's a driver mismatch. If there is, there are instructions at http://www.workthin.com/tsp.htm on how to resolve this

RDP Clients also downloadable here
