  1. Alternatives to printer redirection in RDP sessions.


    Here is our scenario... we have many users that will now be working from home. These users are doing RDP sessions from computers at their homes (using windows 10) to their on site computers (running Windows 7). They do almost all of their work on the remote computer. Many of these users need the ability to print from home so we are going to begin deploying usb connected printers that they can install on their local computers. We have tried just about everything we can think of to get the locally attached printers to show up in their rdp sessions but we are having no luck. We simply can’t get printer redirection in to work on the rdp sessions. What alternatives are their for printer redirection? Can printers be redirected on some other way? Is there another rdp client that we can use?

    Windows Default Printer Behavior. Default printer changing when RDP session uses local share. Last Used option is off. At least one machine picks a third printer to be the default.

    I have a few computers which are changing their default printer. I have turned off the "Last Used" mode. The default printer is set.

    For two computers the user logs in to a RDP session. They print back to a local shared printer. The default changes from the office printer (not shared) to the local shared printer.

    For the third computer, it actually has two shared printers. When I print to this computer from the RDP, the printer that was not selected (though shared) is the one that becomes the default.

    Ex:

    Computer 1 and 2 has Pinter A and C. Printer C is a IP printer and is not shared by the local machine. Printer C is the default (Last Used function is turned off.) Printer A is a local Generic Printer which has a receipt printer attached. The user remotes
    into a 2008 R2 session. They print a receipt to the receipt printer (Printer A.) The default printer for computer 1 and 2 will become printer A.

    Computer 3 has printers A, B, and C. Printer A is a Generic Printer and shared. Printer B is a TM-T20 and shared. Printer C was a PDF printer. I set the default printer to Printer C. I remote into the 2008 server and print to Printer B. Printer A becomes
    the default printer.

    This issue is only being reported on Windows 10 machines. Windows 7 machines behave as expected. I'm not sure how a RDP session should even be allowed to tell the computer initiating the remote session to change its default printer. For this reason, I
    also look at Win 10 to stop the RDP session from being able to change local settings.

    Because of the way the software on the RDP works, I cannot use the printer redirection. Printing to redirected printers, I'm fairly sure, is not causing the same problem. I tested at least once, I think, to a redirected printer and the default printer
    did not change.

    Printer not working after RDP logoff

    I have Windows Server 2016 working as a print server for networked printers. The remote PC (Windows 10) has the printer and driver installed, and works perfectly....until it is connected to from a 2nd PC (Windows 7) through RDP. During the remote session,
    the Win7 PC can print to the printers on the Win10 PC via redirection, but when the session is closed, and the user goes to the physical Win10 PC, the printer will not print, it is greyed out. It has to be uninstalled, and reinstalled before it will print.

    Most documents and answers show fixes for printer problems during the remote session, but I cannot find anything on how to correct the issue I am having AFTER the remote session has ended.

    What can I do to ensure the printer is available?

    Thanks in advance!
