Cannot detect other printer in remote desktop connection

Hello, just set up a remote desktop connection. But when connecting remotely, remote connection cannot detect the local printer.(Canon LBP2900 and Samsung ML-2240) Both printers are shared. Other LPT printers are detected.

I'm using windows server 2008 and the client is using windows xp home SP2.

Tried this, http://searchwarp.com/swa33459.html, but did not work for canon and samsung.

Tried this, http://www.vistax64.com/vista-print-fax-scan/143174-found-solution-having-canon-printers-compatible-microsofts-remote-desktop.html, but when browsing for printer under tsclient, no printer was detected.

Thanks.

    @geo_jonas: your solution worked for Samsung ML 2240 bt not for Canon LBP2900.

    Now I have the same problem with HP D2560. I'm trying to install the printer manually on the server but I cannot find the D2560 model on the list of HP printers.

    Can anyone help?
    Thanks in advance.

Hello my friend, regarding on your problem kindly check your system particularly your windows 2008 server OS. Kind reinstall the printer drivers then then shared it. Then after you share the printers kindly check the ip address of your windows server 2008 OS then go to the workstation Computer then click start button found in your task bar manager then click run. Then kindly type the "\\IP of your windows server 2008" where your printer drivers installed then enter. As soon as you can log in the Windows server 2008 menu environment then if you can find or see the printer icon then click the printers icon then right click then click connect. Let the system automatically installed the printer driver to your workstation computer. then as soon as your system finished installed the printer drivers then try to run and print if you can now print using network LAN.

Is there any software by which i can work on my computer when i am away from my home ?


Hello,you can work with your pc even away from it without a software.. In Windows, Remote Desktop allows you to access your computer from a remote location. To enable Remote Desktop, you must have administrative rights on the computer you want to use as the host (i.e., the computer to which you will connect from a remote location), which must be running one of the following versions of Windows: Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows XP Professional The Remote Desktop Connection client software (for the computer from which you want to connect) is installed by default on all computers running Windows 7, Vista, or XP. Enable the Remote Desktop feature on your host computer From the Start menu, select Control Panel (or Settings, and then Control Panel). Double-click System. In Windows 7 and Vista, click Remote settings. In the "Remote Desktop" section, select one of the two options to allow connections from other computers. In Windows XP, select the Remote tab. Select Allow users to connect remotely to this computer. To choose which users will have remote access, in 7 and Vista, click Select Users... or in XP, click Select Remote Users... . Typically, all administrators of the computer will have access by default. Each user must have a password before you can allow remote access. When you are finished, click OK. Your computer will now be able to accept incoming Remote Desktop connections. Open a connection If you have configured your computer to accept remote connections, to establish a Remote Desktop connection: Depending upon your network configuration and system requirements, you may first have to establish a VPN connection to your host computer's network. From the Start menu, select Programs or All Programs. Select Accessories, and then Remote Desktop Connection. In the space next to "Computer:", type the name or IP address for your host computer. Click Connect. Note: If you would like to adjust any of your connection settings such as screen size, login information, availability of local hard drives and printers, or keyboard and sound behavior, click Options before clicking Connect. In the Log On to Windows dialog box, type your username, password, and domain (if required). Click OK. Once you are connected, you can use your remote computer as if you were sitting in front of it. When you are finished, in the Remote Desktop Connection window, select Start, then Shut Down. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, from the drop-down menu, select Log Off username, where username is your username on the remote computer. Click OK. goodluck!don't forget to rate,thanks'''''****

How do I setup Remote Desktop Service


I assume that the the computer on which you want the Remote desktop and the target computer whose desktop you want to capture are networked properly and the IP address with other TCP/IP settings are properly configured.

That said Go to Start and click Run the Run box will appear. In the run box type "mstsc" command to connect. A box will pop up asking for the "Computer" enter the computer name or more preferably the IP address which you want to connect to and capture the desktop remotely the Target computer.

Go to the target computer physically and right click the "My Computer" icon and then in the menu select the properties tab and click it you will see "System Properties" window pop up. On the top you will see some tabs. Select and click the "Remote" tab. At the Remote Desktop make sure that the "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer" check mark is selected if it is not ticked tick it. This is the way you are allowing your computer and other computers on the network to connect to this target computer.

Now go back to your computer click the connect tab.It should always connect as long as you give the correct IP or computer name in the "Remote desktop connection" box.

Best of Luck!!!

Network printer


First you ned to have a print server connected to your router for any network printer to work.
Also, you can set up printer sharing on a computer that the printer is plugged into. However this computer must always be on for you to print from any other remote computer.
