If you use a PostScript printer on your Macintosh, you can route
printing jobs from the Windows-based computer to the printer attached to
your Macintosh computer. Your Macintosh printers will appear on the
Windows-based computer in the Printers folder in the Control Panel.
They will be named using this format: Macintosh Printer Name/Macintosh
Computer Name/Session Number.
When you log on to a Windows-based computer, Remote Desktop Connection
Client for Mac detects any PostScript printers attached to universal
serial bus (USB) ports as well as any PostScript network printers
attached to your Macintosh computer and creates a queue on the Macintosh
computer for each printer detected on the Windows-based computer you are
connected to. Some Macintosh printer settings (such as printing on both
sides of the page) will not be available from the Windows-based computer.
When you disconnect or end the session, the printer queue is deleted
from the Windows-based computer, and any incomplete or pending print
jobs are lost. On subsequent logons, the printer queue is recreated on
the Windows-based computer using the preferences stored by Remote
If a compatible printer driver is not found on the Windows-based
computer, the Macintosh printer queue is not created in the remote
session, and an event is logged in the Windows Event Logger on the
Windows-based computer. To make the printer available, a compatible
printer driver must be manually installed on the Windows-based computer
you are connecting to.
