CUPS PDF PRINTING IN WINDOWS OVER REMOTE DESKTOP - PRINTER NOT LISTED

[Copy link]

Post time: 2013-2-17 17:22:22 |Show all posts
I am running OS X 10.6.2. I connect remotely using windows remote desktop / terminal services to various windows machines. For the XP and Windows 2003 Server 32 bit systems I have no problems with printing pdf documents from the remote windows system back to my mac using CUPS PDF. I don't have to install anything on the remote windows computer. However, for Windows 2003 Server 64 bit and Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, the CUPS PDF printer does not appear in the printer list. I tried installing the Laserwriter 8500 print driver (which apparently CUPS uses) and attaching to a unused TS printing port. The printer appears in the list but it won't print, and it's obviously not attaching to my computer.
I can't upgrade my mac operating system until I resolve a keyboard driver issue with 10.6.3 and above. Any suggestions?        intel imac core duo,, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

Finally, a solution from Microsoft. Just update your MS Remote Desktop Client software to version 2.1.1, which was released on 5/5/11. The update can be found at the Mactopia.com site.

I am having a similar issue. I'm using Remote Desktop to connect to a 2008 R2 server and am trying to use PDFWriter as a redirected printer to create a PDF. It is only working after I check print to file, save the file (which it creates an XPS file that is not compatible), then I uncheck print to file, click print, and then it creates the pdf file I need.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Basically - I need to have a "PDF" printer because the print window is on the remote server and it doesn't have the save as pdf option.
Thanks.

Bump for this issue. I am running 10.6.6 now and I still can't print to my local printer through Windows remote desktop when connected to a system running Windows 7 64bit.
