Printer redirection and IP printing


C

A problem!!

At the moment I use Terminal Services with Windows 2K and the newer Remote
Desktop Client. When PCs want to print from an application they can use any
locally attached printer or any printer that prints to a network queue ...
whether the printer has a queue associated with a Microsoft shared printer
or it is a NetWare queue. However if the printer is printing directly to an
IP address of a JetDirect box or similar network device this printer will
not appear in the list of available printers when the client goes to print
from terminal services.

It is very popular to set up PCs to print directly to a device with IP
printing, so it would be useful to have the printers available when a person
is using print queue redirection with the Terminal Services Client.

Does anbody know of a way to get this to work .... even if it is a very
devious method .... any idea would be useful!!??

.... or vice-versa .... am I missing something here???


Regards,


Chris Mackie.

Thank you for that .... I also found this ...

"I added a HP Laserjet 4 driver and connected it to the ip port and the lpt3
port with printer pooling enabled. Did some tests and yes, local print jobs
were coming out of the HP4100. Then I connected to my terminal server and
YES! there was the printer. Print test and YES it works. I guess this should
be working with any hp laserjet 4 compatible printer."


If there is another automatic or central way to do it ... it would still be
useful to know of it.
