rdesktop printer redirect


It's about the remote desktop printer redirection.

I would like to make remote document print in local printer.
Do local machine have to support the remote document fonts?

I found if it's not , the local print will get lots of strange codes.
>_<

It doesn't make sense for local having to support remote document font...
Does it?

If your remote computer can directly communicate with your printer... i.e it is shared then I dont see why your local printer should have the fonts.

The scenario is...
A and B are two different systems.
A has a local printer.
A connect to B by remote desktop and open a document of B.
A commit a print command and it print out in local. (That's so called "redirction".)

Under the mechanism ,is A necessary to share its printer?
Or we have some setting for print out successfully?

Hello okeyla!

I belive that some fonts get automatically substituted.
I found this thread while searching to find out why my
international characters got messed up while printing from a windows
machine trough an rdesktop -r printer connection.

i solved the problem by doing these steps on my windows machine: http://www.sketchpad.net/config-ps-printer-winxp.htm
Your problem might be more complicated, but i hope this link helps...

Andrew
