When Redirection Fails for Printers and Other Devices under RDP (Remote Access)

article #146, updated 3447 days ago

Try this registry entry on the client PC:

In HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\Default\AddIns\RDPDR

Create a DWORD value named “FilterQueueType”.  Its value should be “FFFFFFFF” (eight F’s), hexadecimal.

Works especially well for unusual printers, e.g., USB et cetera.  Reportedly helps under XP, Vista, and 7.
