Local print queue fills up when using Remote Desktop to connect to server

    Pertanyaan

  • Hi,

    When I use Remote Desktop to connect to my SBS 2008 R2 server my local print queue fills up with a bunch of print jobs. These jobs never print though, and the longer I am connected, the more jobs accumulate in the queue. Interestingly enough, when I do actually go to print a document on my local printer from within the Remote Desktop session, it prints just fine. I have encountered this problem every time I connect to this server, no matter what PC or OS I am using. So far I have tried it from 3 different PC's, 2 are running windows 7, and the third is running vista. The only way I have figured out to get rid of the print jobs is to cancel them on my local machine, but if I do that while I am connected the queue just fills back up. I have to do it after I disconnect. But when I reconnect, the queue fills up again.

    I would like to keep the option to print to my local printer through Remote Desktop, but I want to stop the queue from filling up with all these false print jobs. Any suggestions?

  • Hi,

    Have you tried to install/use a different driver for this printer on the local PC.If not working,I suggest PCL5 or 6 and universal if possible, but be aware of bad drivers. You can also ask your printer vendor for this issue.

    For adding printers manually and binding them, I suggest you read this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc775141.aspx
