In a nutshell

Printer for Remote Desktop is a software that allows you to print on your local printer from a remote desktop session, VDI, distant computer or cloud instance.

The product consists of two parts, Workstation and Server. The Workstation is installed on the local computer where the printer is physically plugged in. The Server should be installed on the remote desktop server. Once you are logged into remote session, your local printer will become accessible on the remote side as a virtual device and any application can access it to print documents.

Unlike other solutions, Printer for Remote desktop does not require printer drivers on the remote side. This saves a lot of headache for your system administrator.

Security and isolation

Printer for Remote Desktop takes care of your confidential information safety. If you work in a multi-user environment and there are more then one user logged in, your local printer will be isolated from others within your individual remote session. No one but you can use it or even see your printer in the system.

Our solution connects virtual and hardware printers directly without using shared folders, third-party servers or any other tricks. There are no hidden stored copies of your documents somewhere in the system, neither on local nor remote sides.

All communication is performed via virtual channels as a part of remote desktop protocols. Therefore, connection security is provided by existing remote desktop protocols encryption and authentication.

Printer Port for Remote Desktop supports Microsoft RDP, Citrix ICA, Amazon WSP, NICE DCV, VMware Blast, and Teradici PCoIP protocols and will redirect your serial devices to Microsoft Azure, Windows 365, Remote Desktop Services, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, VMware Horizon, AWS and other environments.
