printer setup



I am setting up a windows 2000 TS and am having some problems with printers.
I have the "printers" options selected in the "local resources" selected but
the printer does not show up in the ts session.

Do you need to have the driver installed for each client printer installed
on the ts server?

How can you manualy add a client printer to the ts session.




No, do not install drivers for printers that are newer than the OS. The
recommended & supported method is to create a file that maps unsupported
printers to known compatible built-in drivers. With this in place, if users
are using Remote Desktop Client 5.2.3790 or the one that comes with XP SP2,
you should be happily printing.
