Help! Printing on Vista through Remote Desktop from XP Machine

Q: Help! Printing on Vista through Remote Desktop from XP Machine

Hello everyone,

I want to be able to connect to my Vista Home Premium 32bit machine through an XP machine and print using a printer connected via USB on the XP machine. A little history: I had XP Pro and used remote desktop and printing worked fine. We upgraded the computer and OS to Vista Home Premium 32bit. I understand this version doesn't have remote desktop, but I found a way to get it to work online and now we can connect remotely to the desktop using Remote Desktop.

However, when I try to print something while being connected remotely, it won't print. It doesn't find the USB printer. Please I just want to figure this out. We are using the Vista machine as a remote desktop that houses our excel files and Quickbooks. We connect to this remotely from an XP laptop and 2 Macbook Pro's. Printing doesn't work on either of these computers. They are also on separate networks if that changes anything.

I have read a lot on this and everything points to the same answer -> go to Local Resources in Remote Desktop before you log in remotely and check mark the "select the devices and resources you want to use in your remote session: Printers and Clipboard". Both are checked. Still nothing.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We run a windows 2003 server setup that we connect to using windows remote desktop connection. When trying to print from the server to the local client at a home office some of our printers (HP LaserJet 1320) use a DOT4 port and windows remote desktop wont forward printers not using COM LPT or USB ports.

I managed to find a nice fix for this for Windows XP here. We just recently bought 2 systems running Windows Vista Home Premium and after hours of looking i have not been able to find a similar fix to the way remote desktop forwards printer ports that will work for Vista.

Are there any known fixes to get Vista to forward other printer ports when using Remote Desktop Connection? Any help resolving this would be greatly appreciated.

I am here at the office attempting to use remote desktop to connect into my Vista Ultimate SP1 laptop.

I get connected and logon, get the desktop and everything drawn on screen, the it totally freezes.

After a minute or so I get the dialog box showing that I have been disconnected and it will attempt to reconnect.

Attempting to logon at the console of that laptop now, I put in my password, it says Welcome, then a message comes up stating , "This network connection does not exist."

If I click on OK and attempt to logon again, it gives me the same message.

If I wait about 5 minutes, I am able to logon again.

In the event log I am seeing from source TermDD an event 56 stating, "The Terminal Server security layer detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client."

Is this because I am using SP2 on the XP machine instead of SP3 ?

I've seen similar issues but only on occasion when connecting from the same XP box to my home desktop running Ultimate SP1. Every attempt I may to get into this laptop results in the same thing.

Any thoughts on this? I'd appreciate any input!

Thanks!

I've recently installed wireless at home and run 2 pc's on it, accessing the web via Comcast broadband. All works well when accessing my office PC via XP's 'Remote access web connection'. I can transfer files between office & home and print to machines that are configured on the host (office) to LPT & COM ports.
Last week I replaced my ageing Epson C80 home printer with a new HP Deskjet 5850 wireless printer. It works great and I can print from my 2 home pc's via wireless.
What I can't figure out is how to configure it on my office host pc so that it can see it via RAWC. I've tried adding a port with the printers IP Address but that doesn't work. Have also tried HP's web sights as well as Wxp's but I guess the wireless printer is too new. Any ideas anyone ?

Ok here is my problem. Let me know if im missing any info. We run a terminal server at my my workplace which runs Windows Server 2003 rc2. We use Remote Desktop to log the users in to the TS and run various accounting programs at remote sites. The list of OS's is as follows Winxp pro, Winxp home,Windows 2000, and some Windows Nt(Yeah i know its depressing). The problem im having is in most cases i can not print from a local machine while in remote desktop unless the printer is on an LPT prtiner port. I have tried the Reg hack provided my Microsoft to no avail http://support.microsoft.com/kb/302361 .

I have the printer shared on every Local machine, Rdp is setup coreectly also but still no printy. The only thing i have not tried is installing the driver on the TS and then trying to install and bring over the printer while in RDP. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated. Sorry if i posted in the wrong place.

Hello all, I have what is probably a question none of you have heard before. What I would like to be able to do is to remotely connect to another computer system via teamviewer or any other free remote desktop software, and I want to be able to print from that remote computer to a printer at my location. This may sound wierd, but the reason is that my mother does not have a printer and she would like to be able to print coupons from a site such as coupons.com. This site poses a print limit of 2 of each coupon. So, if I have already printed the coupon she wants, she is out of luck. I'd love to be able to connect to her, install my printer on her computer so that it looks like a local printer, and sent print requests from her computer to my printer. The print request must come from her computer, that is why I am trying to do this. I hope this makes sense to someone, and thanks in advance for any help you can be!
I guess in a nutshell what I am looking to do is print from the remote machine to mine, but the printer must be installed on the remote computer and the print request must come from the remote computer and then be sent over the network to my printer at my location.

I'm working on a client's computer and they have been on a VPN with Remote Desktop printing to a local printer.

I had to replace that printer, and attempted to adjust the printer to go to the new one. It does not show up on the printer list. When I go to the local resources tab on Remote Desktop it shows that the printers are checked.

I'm not sure how this was setup originally and I can't get it to see any of the new local printers on the remote desktop.

Does anyone have any suggestions, I've scoured the internet for solutions and nothing yet has worked.

A:Remote Desktop via VPN not printing!

I've ran into this problem in the field, that's a problem with remote desktop for some reason. For some reason, remote desktop does not pick up on most USB or network attached printers. LPT printers will work though I have found out.

Good news is that Microsoft has a registry edit that allows you to trick Windows into thinking all printers are connected via LPT.

Here is the link.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;302361

Make sure you back up your registry before you proceed. Note, this must be done on the workstation the printer is attached to. Also make sure you have the drivers loaded on the server.

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 XP Professional on a remote computer. 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: 1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to Communications, and then click Remote Desktop Connection.
2. Click Options in the Remote Desktop Connection dialog box.
3. Click the Local Resources tab.
4. Click Printers in the Local Devices box.
5. 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... Read more

After entering it and clicking OK it brings me back to the log in screen. Over and Over. Does anyone have an idea of what I may have done wrong? I can post a link of the site I used to set it up.

All,

I have an issue I was hoping someone else has had and could guide me on. I have remote users accessing Unix systems behind a firewall using RealVNC, and they have "local" desktop printers attached to their remote systems. How can they print files from the VNC session on their local printers? The firewall team only allows the RealVNC "session-manager" port to be opened, and they are very restrictive...however the remote users need to print locally due to the fact that there are no print servers in the environment they connect to with VNC. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Windows 7 machine that I'm trying to setup to allow Remote Desktop connections so that I can access my machine when I'm away from home. I used this method in the past with other machines and always enjoyed the convenience of working at my home PC when away on vacation, etc.

After setting it up, I can access the machine using Remote Desktop Connection from within the local LAN network using the computer name. However, I cannot access it using my external IP address which should be the router which should forward it to my personal computer. The error I get says "Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons: 1) Remote access to the server is not enabled, 2) The remote computer is turned off, 3) The remote computer is not available on the network."

Here is everything I've done so far:

I've enabled Remote Assistance connections via the System Properties and Allowed connects from any version of Remote Desktop

The Remote Desktop services (3 of them I think) are all enabled and started.

I've checked and Windows Firewall is allowing port 3389 through

I have an Asus RT-N66R router which I've added a Port Forwarding rule to forward that port to the LocalIP of my personal machine.

Hi everyone

We have a lot of users regularly utilising Remote Desktop Connection on XP and Vista, from home or an external office. Our file/print server is Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server, and our Terminal Server is Windows Server 2003 Standard, SP2.

When a user logs on to RDC, it often creates "remote desktop redirected printer doc" print jobs, every few seconds. So if a user is online for hours, it will create thousands of them. Which obviously slows printing, jams the spoolsv.exe process and causes major problems.

These remote desktop redirected printer docs can manifest on our 2 Konica Minolta network printers, or a 3rd printer set up for our external office, or on the user's personal home printers, if they have any installed. So it's not just printers that haven't had their drivers installed on the main server. It can and does affect all printers.

These "remote desktop redirected printer doc" print jobs can and do go to ANY of the printers installed. Yesterday I used RDC and it sent 1500 of those junk print jobs to each of the 2 main office printers, as well as 500 junk print jobs to my Adobe Acrobat software printer, and about 250 to my home Epson printer (which was offline as I was in the office, not at home).

When I use Remote Desktop, I make sure to use local resources while remoted in. I check the computers devices and printers and it sees my local printer. But when I go to print. It sends the job not to my local printer that I told it to. But to another printer
at another worksite. So the print job just holds until I plug into the network at that job site and sends my print job out. I checked the printer properties for the local printer to see why it is not printing. And it says the port is not active. Then I check
to see if that other printer from the other worksite is listed as a possible printer on the computer I have remoted in and it is not visible.

I am confused on how to proceed. What are your thoughts and solutions?

 Thank you!

Since June 14th 2019, about 5 computers whom have staff login from home through a VPN > Remote desktop to their windows 7 computer, can't re-login after a disconnect. 
They login, do their work, disconnect, and if they try to reconnect to remote desktop it sits at configuring remote session and eventually throw the internal error has occurred. I then have to hard reboot the system in the office because the login screen
has hung up. This is the same issue for all 5. I uninstalled any updates that happened in and around the time the issue first came up. To no avail. Any tips??

I have a home network set up, with my primary computer being a WinXP Pro machine. I used to have a Win95 and a Win98 machine hooked up in the network as well. I was previously able to remote desktop into my WinXP machine without an issue. I am using the Windows remote desktop feature, but I'm using a non-standard port, with the port open on my router, and my WinXP machine. Last week, I replaced the Win98 machine with a Win2k machine, and I am now not able to remote desktop into my XP machine. Is there something I need to do on the 2k machine? Could it be blocking remote access to my XP machine somehow?

I have a Epson RX 680 all in one printer connected to a older desktop running XP Home. Recently got a HP notebook running Vista. I can't remote print. I was able to remote print with my old Thinkpad XP. Have a Linksys router hard wired to the desktop and the HP can pick up the router to get on internet and e-mail. How can I solve this problem?

I suspect the solution to this is something simple I've overlooked, but...

I have a home wireless network with everything managed on an older XP PC. We've recently added two laptops, both running VISTA.

I've been able to connect the VISTA machines to the network, access the internet, can share files, they see each other. I want to print from the LAPTOPS to a printer attached to my main XP machine, but can't. (I can see the desired printer through the network from the laptops.)

I've set up the printer as a "Vista" version so that when I connect to it, I'm getting the right printer and drivers (I hope.) The printer is an HL2040 (Brother, Laser), and is called BrotherH.3. (It will print from the XP PC.) This printer is a USB printer, and has been set up to be shared.

When I try to connect to the printer from the laptops I get the message on the Laptops that "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Access is denied."

What am I doing wrong?
 

A:Remote Printing in VISTA/XP Home Network

Maybe a non-Windows firewall (security suite) on the XP allowing file sharing but not access to the printer?

Maybe a firewall on the Vistas?

I'm trying to use my desktop P3 / 550 Win98 machine as a print server. It worked great for my Win XP laptop. Now I have a new Vista laptop and things aren't so good. Things I have tried:

1. Changing "LmCompatibilityLevel" to 1 from 3
2. Connecting the printer directly to the Vista laptop (worked great, just the USB cable isn't long enough to make the laptop mobile....)
3. Create a local printer using a Local Port with the name \\Desk_office\konica

With #3, when I print a test page from my Vista machine, it gives no error, but also no test page.
I've checked to make sure the Win98 desktop has the printer set to sharing (Share Name: KONICA).
On the Vista laptop I go to Network > Desk_Office and I can see the Konica there. But if I try to connect to the printer from there I get an "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Operation could not be completed. (error 0x00000866)"

Any other ideas?
 

A:Printing from Vista to a Konica connected to an Win98 Machine

You need to install the printer drive for the printer before you can connect to printer, since 98 knows nothing about 2000/XP/Vista, it cannot provide the driver automatically.

We have a strange issue going on with a couple of freshly imaged Windows 7 workstations over here.

At first we were unable to remote in to them because of a message that the remote computer does not support NLA. Setting the option to Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure) works, but then RDP goes directly
to the remote machine and authentications happens there, which would be the case with a XP (or other non-NLA-capable) machine.
I tried troubleshooting the issue by opening the Certificates snap-in in mmc and deleting the Remote Desktop self-signed certificate but I seem to be unable to reissue/recreate it again...
I have read that i need to restart the Remote Desktop Configuration service in order for the certificate to recreate itself, but whenever I try to do this, Event Viewer logs the following error:
Log Name: System
Source: TerminalServices-RemoteConnectionManager 
Event ID: 1057
The Terminal Server has failed to create a new self signed certificate to be used for Terminal Server authentication on SSL connections. The relevant status code was An internal error occurred.
.

Any help or ideas on that would be greatly appreciated!

A:How can I reissue the Remote Desktop self-signed certificate for a standard Windows 7 client machine?

Hi,

Please check if this post can help:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverTS/thread/8df42746-465f-4902-95a6-121ef1f0fd68

Meanwhile, you can try the following:
Check the MachineKeys directory.
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys\XXX

Copy the keys to a different directory by taking a backup and go into the file system and also delete the files in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys\.
After deletion log off and log in to see how it works.

If this cannot help,
I recommend to post in Server Forum to get more insights.

I think this is some new security feature, but for some reason if I try to do remote desktop from one Vista machine to another, the credentials do not get saved, despite selecting the option to save them.

Has anyone found out how to make things stick with this option.. or does it require some sort of certficate on each end?

Thanks

I have tried to connect to PC with Vista Business 32 from PC Vista Ultimate 64 via Remote desktop connection but it doesn't work!

Why?

It tells me that my credentials (username and password) are not valid even though they are.

A:Remote desktop connection from Vista 64 to Vista 32

Jarvin,
If I may, assume these 2 computers are on a network. If so you can try the following.

1. On Vista Bis32 go to Control Panel > Select Classic View on the left side of the screen > System icon > Advanced System Settings> Remote Tab and select the "allow connection". Pick which one suits your needs. Then click Select Users button and add your name in the list so it know to allow you.

2. On the Vista 64 bit start the RDP session and then click the options button and adjust that as you like. I usually click on Advanced Tab then under the Authentication options I usualy select "always connect even if authentication fails".

I need to read up more on RDP that comes with Vista to better answer RDP questions

Hope this helps!

My connection for Remote Desktop is extremely slow. It will be quick for about 30- 60 seconds, then all of the sudden it grinds to a halt and will not move for another 5 to 10 seconds. Sometimes the connection is lost.

Both computers are communicating via my local router (LAN connection). This should be lightning quick with my modern computers and both having Vista right?

I have disabled my auto-tunning on both computers just like so many forums have told me to do. This does not help at all!
I am connecting to a Vista Ultimate 32-bit Computer (1.5 Ghz) from a Vista Home Premium 64-bit Computer (2.23 Ghz with 4 GB of Ram) via Remote Desktop Connection (RDC).

Anyone out there that knows what I should do? I have also tried disabling all of the graphics sounds and themes in the RDC options.

Hello. I remote desktop from my laptop running W7 Home Premium 64bit to my desktop running Vista Ultimate 64bit. Everything runs alright but the graphic appearance of Vista is not good at all. Would anyone know if this can be optimized somehow - for example by changing default font on Vista? ... or does my laptop graphic card cause the problem (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 Series)? ... or is it usual that graphic appearance of remote connection is generally worse than the original? Many thanks

:-) Really worked. The graphic appearance is flawless now. Many thanks again

Hi all. I already have a home network that works great, but I want to use remote desktop to control my XP machine from my Vista laptop in the other room. It would be nice to use it over the internet but all I need to do is access it from one room away so I can cue my recording software on my XP machine from my laptop where my instruments are. I guess all i really need to know is what software I need and what I have to do to make the two OSs computable.

THANKS!

I can remote desktop into my Vista PC, but whenever I do this when someone else is logged in, I get prompted to basically kick them off.

If I say yes, they get a pop-up that says I want to use the computer, and gives them 30 seconds to respond before forcing them off, letting me get in.

I immediately got the same pop-up on my end because my daughter wanted to use the machine (from the console).

Is there a way to either allow or disallow certain users/groups from kicking someone off?

Basically, I kicked my daughter off because it's past her bed time (she's 5.) I don't want her to be able to kick me back off. I already have the "login time" restriction set, but somehow she got past that (maybe because she was still logged in, but "locked" when I kicked her off.)

What I would like to do is force a logoff when logon hours expire (this is set in my domain policy, but doesn't work), and to be able to kick someone off the computer if I want to use it remotely (preferrably with no pop-up, just kick them off), and for them not to be able to do this to me.

I'm running Vista Ultimate SP1, attached to a 2003 Domain.

Thanks in advance!

I have a desktop with Windows XP Pro and am considering buying a notebook with VISTA on it... (1) can I use Remote Desktop to login to my XP Pro Desktop from a Vista notebook through a wireless connection, and (2) What version of Vista will I need in order to do this?

Thanks!

Yes, you can (remote desktop) and (remote assist) XP machine using a Vista machine. I'm have Vista Enterprise and remote XP machines all the time. Not really sure what and if other versions support that.
