Simplifying RDP printing! Print2RDP simplifies remote desktop printing on Microsoft Terminal Server and on Citrix servers, in cloud environments.
Ideal solution for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment on Citrix XenApp, XenDesktop, VMware Horizon + ThinApp, Microsoft RemoteApp, Microsoft Hyper-V, Hyper-V VDI.
A seamless installation combined with driverless printing that is compatible with local or network printers, makes printing as easy as Install, Connect, and Print!
IT administrators no longer have to worry about mounting and maintaining printer drivers or configurations. The Print2RDP removes and eliminates the need for terminal server administrators to bog themselves down attempting to support their terminal server user’s printing needs.

Print2RDP dynamically configures itself to present the user with a seamless printing solution allowing them to print any file from a terminal server environment directly to their local or network PC. Print2RDP 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?
Print2RDP automatically creates a virtual printer driver for each client printer to be mapped on the terminal server. The virtual printer drivers appear as available printers and will be easily identifiable to the printing user.
Terminal Server users can print to the virtual printer drivers as they would print to any printer from any Windows application. Print2RDP will then compact and transmit the data to the client’s local printer for printing. The data transmitted by Print2RDP 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.

The MSI installer is compatible with Microsoft SMS/SCCM. To obtain Print2RDP MSI installations, System Administrators need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Full Access to Client Printer Options
Print2RDP allows the user to have full access to the local printer driver settings via the Print2RDP Client. By turning on Printing Preferences in the client, the user's local printer driver dialog will appear prior to the print job being sent to the printer, allowing the user to change options, such as printer trays and other printer options.
SSL / TLS Encryption

Print2RDP is compatible with any available printers, including network printers, USB, multi function units, fax printers, and more. Push-button user management. Upgrade your number of users by simply entering your new serial number.
Automatic Bandwidth Optimization
Print2RDP automatically minimizes the amount of data sent between the server and client to keep bandwidth requirements to a minimum.
Definable Printer Naming
Print2RDP automatically assigns a straightforward naming convention to associated client printers to allow users to quickly and easily locate their desired printer. Additionally, system administrators can customize the naming conventions used to meet their specific needs.
RDP and ICA Support
Print2RDP includes identical support for both RDP and ICA protocols, providing support for standard Microsoft Terminal Server systems in addition to supporting Citrix systems.
Add Printers at installation
When the Add the client's default printer option is checked, the user's local default printer is automatically added to the Print2RDP Client printer list. This printer will be added to the server (and will be the default in the session) when you connect to Print2RDP Server.
When the Add every client printer option is checked, every local printer of the users is automatically added to the Print2RDP Client printer list. These printers will be added to the server when the user connects with the Print2RDP Client to the Print2RDP Server.
NEW! Make attached printers usable by every logged-in user
Administrators have the option to make every user’s printer to be visible to other users on the server, so every user can print to any other user’s attached printer(s) on the server.
Azure RemoteApp support
Print2RDP supports Microsoft Azure RemoteApp connections, and mounting printers easily.
Ericom Blaze Client Support
Print2RDP supports mounting printers to servers using the Ericom Blaze Client, which is a commonly used alternative for Microsoft Remote Desktop Client.
