RTP or Redirecting printer port RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work for a commercial printer we have upgraded our computers that rip the jobs to the printers. We have large volumes of print work that must go thru a redirecting port to hit an executable file that automatically sets the printer options. What it does is take up to 100 individual files that are numbered sequentially. The first file is printed 1 sided on blue paper. each file thereafter the first page is printed on orange paper and the remaining pades are printed on white paper all printed on both sides then staples the file. This continues until the numeric sequence has ended and the next picks up. The great things about this is it is automated and the printer sees this 100 file series as 1 file thus reducing rip time and we can run 75 to 200 of these seriesed files all at one time. We do this on a weekly basis for 1200 groups of files and is the mainstay of our buisness.

    It is simply a must that the RDP or redirecting port be available be available in Windows 7 32 bit. We must use 32 bit for the print drivers to function correctly.

  • Hi,

    First, I would like verify what kind of problem you have encountered? Have you installed the correct version of the driver?  

    Regarding the printer redirection, you can check the following article about the group policy

    Hope this helps.
