Printer for Remote Desktop is a printing solution for Terminal Services, Remote Desktop, VDI, Citrix and Cloud environments. Users print directly to their local printers without installing printer drivers on any terminal server.
The program consists of Workstation and Server parts. Workstation part should be installed on the local computer or thin client. Server side goes to the remote server and creates FabulaTech Virtual Printer. The virtual printer is mapped over the existing remote desktop connection to a locally plugged hardware printer or even network printer.
There is also no need to worry about drivers on the server as the software already has everything it needs to work flawlessly.
Printer for Remote Desktop takes care of your confidential information. In case of multi-user environment (Windows Server 2008, 2012, 2016), if there are more than one user logged in to the remote side, each printer is isolated within its individual session. So you don't need to worry that your document containing sensitive data will be sent to somebody else's printer, even by mistake. Each user can see only own printers within the remote session. It’s not needed to scroll through the list of devices of other users to find your printer.
Native printer drivers are not required on the remote side. It’s not needed to install any drivers on the remote side every time you plug in a new printer (new printer driver installation requires administrative rights and can be a headache for your system administrator).
Printer for Remote Desktop supports different remote desktop protocols including Microsoft RDP, Teradici PCoIP, Citrix ICA. It does not matter what environment is used (Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Terminal Services, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, VMware View, Amazon Workspaces and others). Any compatible Client software can be used for accessing remote side. And there is no need to change firewall settings.
Printer for Remote Desktop works perfectly in seamless mode. It is easy and convenient feature which allows to connect your local printer to any remote application running printing in seamless mode.
Printer for Remote Desktop reduces printing data volume and as a result speeds data transfers. The image quality of all the printouts is absolutely maintained.
Printer for Remote Desktop works with all brands of printers so there is no need to switch to any specific hardware. The program maintains all standard printing features, it supports all color modes and resolutions and all standard paper sizes both portrait and landscape orientation.
Printer for Remote Desktop functionality can be easily integrated into your application. So you allow terminal server users to access local printers in remote Windows session. Read more…
