We have a local printer (A Brother Multifunction printer) that does not
shown up on the terminal server then we are connecting.

I have tried to install the drivers on the server to see if the terminal
server would connect the printer from the Remote Desktop client, but no.. it
wouldn't..

How can i make this local printer to be (it's local on the computer who
connects), used through the terminal service??

Most Brother MFC printers are NOT terminal services compliant. Your best hope
is to try to map this printer to a LaserJet 4 driver via user defined inf
file.

There is one more solution using custom INF file and custom mapping:

Please create two registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal
Server\Wds\rdpwd\PrinterMappingINFName = <exact location of the custom INF
file>

Ex: C:\WINNT\inf\printOEM.inf



HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal
Server\Wds\rdpwd\PrinterMappingINFSection = <section name in custom INF
file>

Ex: OEM Printer Mapping



NOTE: both registry values must be “string” type



For this above example you custom INF file should be Named:
“printOEM.inf”

Located in: “C:\WINNT\inf\”

section title: “[OEM Printer Mapping]”



inside the file:


[OEM Printer Mapping]

“client side driver name ” = “server side driver name”

“your OEM driver name” = “HP LaserJet 4”

“your OEM driver name” = “your OEM driver if it is capable to
install”
