When printing using Terminal Server, the print driver needs to be installed on the server itself. If you have a printer that doesn't have the driver installed on the server, it will either not print at all or it will use the "fallback driver", which is something set by the person who administers the server. Thus, it may be trying to use an HP driver to print to a Brother printer, which won't work. Ask the administrator to install the Brother driver on the server and it should work at that point.

Printing Gibberish


I presume you have some sort of Win OS, if if you don't the First thing is to go to Start, select printers, select the printer in question, rt click on your printer, select properties, you will see "print test page", click see what the result is. If it won't print or is garbage, your driver is moast likely corrupt. Uninstall the drivers, (if it is USB connected - unplug the USB connection) for your printer. Shut-down your PC. Restart then Re-install the most current version of your printer driver that you can download. That should fix it. HTH.BOL.
