I have been having problems trying to access my local printer when I am logged on to my main office network. We normally log on using Citrix. However owing to the problems I decided to log on using XP remote connection, I can access my server without any problems and any applications but whenever I try to print the following message appears

An error has occurred in the cript on this page
Line 1174
Char 1
Error Unspecified Error
Code 0
URLres//C:\WINNT\System32\shdoclc.dll/preview.dlg

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

YES NO


I am using Windows XP Home edition and my printer is LEXMARK 3100 Series

HOW TO: Make a Local Printer Available During a Connection to a Remote
Desktop in Windows XP Professional

This article was previously published under Q312135

SUMMARY

Requirements
How to Make a Local Printer Available in a Remote Desktop Session
SUMMARY
By default, when you try to print from a program that is running on a
computer that you are connected to with a Remote Desktop connection, you
can gain access to printers that are available to the remote Windows XP
Professional-based computer. You can make a local printer (for example, a
printer that is on the client computer) available for printing. This
article describes how to make a local printer available for printing while
you use the Remote Desktop feature.

How to Make a Local Printer Available in a Remote Desktop Session

The Remote Desktop feature is based on Terminal Services technology. When
you use Remote Desktop, you can run programs from any other client that is
running Windows on a remote computer that is running Windows XP
Professional. When you do this, you can gain access to your Windows XP
Professional-based desktop from almost any remote connection, that provides
secure access to programs, files, and network resources.

When you use Remote Desktop from a Windows XP-based client computer, many
of the client's resources, such as files and printers, are available in the
Remote Desktop connection. You can route printing jobs from the remote
Windows XP-based desktop to a printer that is attached to your local
computer. When you log the client onto the remote computer, the local
printer is detected and the appropriate printer driver is installed on the
remote computer.

To make a local printer available in a Remote Desktop session:
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to
Communications, and then click Remote Desktop Connection.
Click Options in the Remote Desktop Connection dialog box.
Click the Local Resources tab.
Click Printers in the Local Devices box.
Click Connect.
After you establish the remote connection and log on to the remote
computer, the local printer that is connected to the client becomes the
default printer for any programs that are running on the remote desktop. If
the client has more than one printer attached to it, the default printer
for the computer becomes the default printer on the remote desktop;
however, all local printers are available.

Note that when you click Connect, the settings that you specify in the
Remote Desktop Connection dialog box are used as the default settings for
all new connections. On the General tab in the Remote Desktop Connection
dialog box, you can save a collection of settings to a Remote Desktop file.
When you do this, you can create different groups of settings for
connections to different remote desktops.

Hope this helps.
