Simplifying Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP Pro RDP printing
Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP Pro (or above) users can take advantage of Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol and Remotely log into their machines from other Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP Pro (or above) computers or Windows machines with the Remote Desktop software installed. This is great for the occasional telecommuter who needs to access their desktop at the office or remotely accessing the home PC.
However, the Windows Remote Desktop Protocol doesn’t work with many of the consumer printers on the market and some virtual printer drivers. Print2Desktop makes mapping these drivers easy. Just install the Print2Desktop Server component on the machine you are logging into, and the Print2Desktop Client component on the machine you are Remoting from and select the printers you want to map, the next Remote Desktop session you initiate your printers will appear on the remote computer.

Print2Desktop dynamically configures itself to present the user with a seamless printing solution allowing them to print any file from an RDP session directly to their local or network PC. Print2Desktop is compatible with any available windows printer driver, including USB printers, network printers and even virtual printer drivers used in fax and document imaging applications.
How does it work?
Print2Desktop automatically creates a virtual printer driver for each client printer to be mapped on the remote PC. The virtual printer drivers appear as available printers and will be easily identifiable to the printing user.
RDP users can print to the virtual printer drivers as they would print to any printer from any Windows application. Print2Desktop will then compact and transmit the data to the client’s local printer for printing. The data transmitted by Print2Desktop is typically much smaller than the actual file being printed and will still have the same print quality and color as the original document.
Any number of printers can be automatically connected to each terminal server client session. This can optionally be restricted by the system administrator to be only the default client printer or a maximum number of client printers.
Print2Desktop is supported on the following platforms:
Full access to Client Printer Options
Print2Desktop allows the User to have full access to his local printer driver settings via the Print2Desktop Client. By turning on Printing Preferences in the client, the user's local printer driver dialog will appear just prior to the print job being sent to the printer, allowing the user to change options such as printer trays and other printer options.
Print2Desktop is based on the industry leading Black Ice printer drivers and the elapsed time from pressing print from the remote client to the time the print job is delivered to the client printer. It is faster than any other product on the market.
Configuration Free, Install and forget
Print2Desktop automatically configures itself to match the target printer settings, including color settings, resolution, orientation, etc. Neither users nor system administrators need to worry about configuring a thing. Print2Desktop is compatible with any available printer, including network printers, USB, multi function units, fax printers, and more.
Automatic Bandwidth Optimization
Print2Desktop automatically minimizes the amount of data sent between the server and client to keep bandwidth requirements to a minimum.
