JSI Tip 1900. How do I print to a Terminal Server client's local printer?

To print to the client's local printer when conected to a Terminal Server using RDP4.0 or RDP5.0:

1. The windows NT print driver for the client's local printer must be installed on the Terminal Server, even if the client is running another O/S.

2. The Terminal Server must have NetBIOS name resolution to the client, either via WINS or a LMHOSTS entry.

3. If the client connects via RAS or VPN, they must logon to the domain.

4. The client's printer must be shared.
