RDP w/ Network Printer on Remote Client

We are using Vista Business to remotely connect to XP and Server 2003 RDP
5.x and 6 clients.

On the local PC, we have a network printer that is connected via a standard
tcp/ip port along with a few other printers. We have the RDP client setup
to allow the remote client to print to the local printers. However, only
sometimes does the local printer show up on the remote machine. Also, never
does the local network printer shoe up on the remote machine.

That said, sometimes the ts000X printer ports will show as active. In that
situation, we can setup the proper print driver and play a guessing game
until we find the proper ts000X port. Durring that session, printing works
fine. However, on the next connect, the TS ports may be disconnected or
re-arranged, even when the client only has one printer.

Any suggestions would be apriciated. Thank you.

Re: RDP w/ Network Printer on Remote Client

By default Remote Desktop Client will only redirect LPTx and USB printers.

To have TCP/IP or other printers show up in the remote session, you need to
set the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server
Client\Default\AddIns\RDPDR\FilterQueueType to FFFFFFFF. Add the key if it
is not present.

Also, the printer driver must be present on the remote computer. Add it in
Control Panel | Printers | File | Server properties | Drivers.

Hope that helps.

I haven't had any success getting this to work when the local computer is
running Vista. It works when the local computer is XP but I have not been
able to get Vista to see USB printers on the local machine

Were you ever able to connect to your server, using RDP on your Vista
machine, and while on your Remote Desktop, print to the USB printer connected
to your Vista machine? If so, how?
