Remote Printing with RDP-DOS using Citrix or Terminal Server

 

Category Article ID# Date Description
Printing K000179 5/12/04 Remote Printing with RDP-DOS using Citrix or Terminal Server

Printing with the RDP-DOS remotely only works reliably with Remote Desktop Connection using a Citrix or Terminal Server.  It does not work with Windows 2000 servers, Carbon Copy, NetMeeting,  PC Anywhere, or any other remote connection product.   To print remotely using Remote Desktop Connection with Terminal Server using a Windows 2003 server, follow the steps below:

Use Remote Desktop connection to connect the the Windows 2003 server running Terminal Server.  Select the "options" button.  Then select the "local resources" tab. 

Make sure to check BOTH the "Printers" and Serial Ports options.  The printers will not print if you only check "printers".  This appears to be a bug with Microsoft that they have not yet fixed.

Click connect to make the connection.  

Warning:  Make sure to check BOTH the "Printers" and Serial Ports options.  The printers will not print if you only check "printers".  

Set up the local printer in RDP.  This is done as follows:
  1. RDP menu 98, option 096
  2. Select option "P"- Add/Change/Delete RDP Local Printers (LPT1-LPT4)
  3. Select Parallel Port=1 and set up correctly as appears at the right.
  4. File the changes and test the remote printing.

Warning:  To make RDP print faster, you must edit the registry.  See:

Note: There are special steps required to install Pervasive on Citrix or Terminal Server.  See Pervasive Work Group Engine Required, Run as Service on Citrix/Terminal Server.  The work group engine can be purchased from RDP by calling RDP Sales.


Warning:  64-bit workstations are not supported for call accounting, phone actuator, maid phone, voicemail, and point sale interface computers. These programs still require the use of 16-bit MS DOS program, which is not supported on 64-bit machines. 32-bit operating systems are supported for interfaces.
