Those who work in a remote desktop environment know what a headache printing can be. Up until now there have been several workarounds to do it.
You could transfer the file you want to print to your local machine. But in this case software for printing is required and in addition you need to switch between the remote session and the local system which makes it inconvenient.
You could plug your printer directly into the remote computer but the location of the remote side could make it unaccessible.
Or you could use Windows printer redirection over RDP. But in a multi-user environment each printer needs its individual drivers on the remote computer and each user has to select needed printer from the list of all printers redirected to the remote side. This is often a cause for confusion.
While working in a remote desktop session you don't want to waste your time figuring out how to resolve the above problems. To avoid all this, use Printer for Remote Desktop.
All you need to do is simply install its components on your local computer and the remote side. That's all it takes! Now you can start printing from your remote desktop session to the local printer without any hassle!
Printer for Remote Desktop creates a virtual printer on the remote side within your remote session which allows you to print from any application to your local printer. There is also no need to install any printer drivers on the remote computer.
Printer for Remote Desktop takes care of your confidential information. If there is more then one user is logged in to the remote side, you can be sure that each printer is isolated within its individual session. No one but you can print to your local printer or even see it in the system. Besides you don't need to scan through the list of printers to find the one plugged into your particular machine.
Printer for Remote Desktop is extremely easy to use. Doesn't require any additional drivers on the remote side. There is no need to install them on the remote side every time you plug in a new printer, which requires administrative rights and makes it a headache for your system administrator.
