Poor Man’s TS Universal Print Driver

All the terminal services print drivers I found were too expensive for a 2 user TS environment that I was maintaining.

  • On the client download and install this open source pdf print driver for windows http://www.pdfforge.org/.
  • Setup the pdf printer to automatically print to the client printer and to auto save.
  • On the server install the open source pdf print driver and delete the printer it creates so now you have the drivers on the server.

From the client connect to the terminal server and print a test page, you should get a print pop up asking to confirm the print settings.

The reason this works is that the pdfforge will send the PS document to the client computer to be processed. The best benefit is that its all free.
