What is Printer for Remote Desktop

Print from a remote desktop session to your local printer
over Microsoft RDP or Citrix ICA.


Printer for Remote Desktop is a reliable and easy-to-use solution for remote printing. It allows you to use your local printer in a remote desktop environment through Microsoft RDP or Citrix ICA.

Before this solution was created, if you wanted to print in a remote session, you had only a few workarounds to choose from: you could use Windows printer redirection over RDP, transfer files for printing to the local machine with the printer, or you could plug your printer directly to the remote computer.

Unfortunately these methods are not always convenient or acceptable for those who work in remote desktops on a daily basis. For instance, Terminal Server can be physically inaccessible, it can require printer drivers, or you may have to select your printer from a long list of printers redirected to the remote session which often happens in a multi-user environment.
