Hi everyone -
I've seen a few topics started on this, but none seemed to end up being very useful.
I am using Remote Desktop Connection constantly for work. Both machines run Windows 7 Professional x64.
My local machine has a few printers installed, but only some of them appear in the Remote Desktop session for use. Here is what I figured out so far:
Printers would NOT show up if
- They are connected to my local machine through the network (ie - the printer is shared by a server, and I am connecting to it that way)
- They are connected to my local machine via USB
Printers DO show up if:
- I connect to a network printer using their specific IP address as a local port instead of connecting through the server
I have all the appropriate checkboxes selected in the RDC box. I have also tried bringing my remote machine to the local machine and physically plugging in the USB cord and installing the drives to ensure I can print when physically connected to the machine.
Does anyone know how to fix this? My biggest desire it to get the USB printer working, with the server vs. IP address issue being secondary.
Thanks in advance!!
