RDP Printing

By jason ·
I have configured an HPLJ 4240 as a local printer with a standard TCP/IP port, the printer has been configured with a static IP on a 10.X network. I have used the same PCL6 driver on the workstation and the server. I connect to the RDP session just fine. I can ping the printer from the server at the main site but when I attempt to send a print job to the printer I get Event I 1111, which recomended I run the Terminal Server Printer Driver Redirection Wizard. I did this, but was unclear as to what driver I should have used, I ended up choosing the same PCL6 driver and still have no success printing. The Server is Win2000 with a 172.x network address and the workstation is XP Pro. Any ideas from anyone that may have run into this similar issue would be helpful.

is the ip printer configured on the xp work station or the terminal server? i have found that work station printer redirection only occurs for the following: printers connected directly via usb or lpt to the work station or installed as an ipp printer or a shared printer. ip ports for some reason do not redirect.

I have found the best way to setup remote desktop printing with a network or shared printer is to install a fake lpt printer with the same driver and setup print pooling to the usb, networked or shared printer. when doing this the lpt port is seen by terminal services and redirects your printer every time. </2cents>
