How to sign printer driver with self-signed certificate (redirect local printer with unsigned driver)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, Dear Colleagues.

    Would you kindly to help me with next question.

    We are using local printers in RDS. If to redirect printers with origin drivers, not remote desktop easy print, printing speed is increasing. But drivers are unsigned and printers do not redirects with appropriate error (driver unsigned and etc.) until to sign driver (tested it with new signed, but unstable drivers). And I want to sign this old drivers with self-signed certificate.

    How can I do so, or maybe there is a way to bypass this limitation and use unsigned driver for printer redirection?

    Thanks.

    Have a nice day.
