    Hey All,

    I am hosting a terminal server for clients with software running to their specifications. I keep running into a common problem. It seems like every now and then, someone doent have a printer that is supported by terminal server or I always end up downloading yet another printer driver. (Its a never ending game).

    I would ultimately like to have a solution that will "pass thru" without me having to keep installing drivers.

    OR

    Set up a list of common printer drivers for clients to have. Does anyone know of most common/popular printers?

    Any thoughts are much appreciated.

    -Tyler

    It's not that the printer is not support by Terminal Server. The printer is probably not plug & Play with Windows in general. It would help if we knew what kind of printers you have, and if they came with any driver disks. If not, usually you can download drivers off the Internet to make them work.
