I am stumped by a printer redirection problem we are having on various PCs throughout our network. We use RDP (Server 2008r2) to have users log into our farm and access our ERP. Since we have multiple locations, each store has printers installed locally, and they are simply shared among each other.
The problem is this, though: Some PCs (Windows XP SP3) will NOT redirect particular printers. For example, I have one computer that prints locally (this is a shared printer attached to another computer), and it's port is set to use USB (not DOT4). I've updated the Remote Desktop Client to 7.0, and I've even applied the fix that Microsoft suggests [http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;302361] by adding a DWORD value in the registry to allow all printers to be redirected, but still no dice.
There doesn't appear to be anything in particular that is causing this issue - it can happen to various models of printers or PCs. Any thoughts?
