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.

No Terminal Server? If you are Remoting into Windows 11/10/8/7 use Print2Desktop to solve your RDP Printing problems! Click here for more info!



    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.

    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.
