I did something similar I wonder if it would work. We are using Remote Desktop so maybe you can get something out of this.
We had someone that connected remotely to a PC in Mexico and she wanted to print from the remote PC to a network printer here in our office. Computer was in Spanish too....that was fun navigating.
I'll post the steps for a network printer, hopefully you can get something out of it.
1) Go to Remote Desktop Connection Settings
- Local Resources Tab
- Check off printers
- Select 'More'
- Check off 'Ports'
- Back to 'General Tab' select 'Save'
- On the host go to “Start” and then to “Devices and Printers”.
- Select “Add a printer” at the top left.
- On the “Add Printer” window select “Add a local printer”.
- Select “Use an existing port” and then drop the list down to expose your available ports.
- You will see a long list of ports, many beginning with “TS”, which stands for terminal services. As you scroll through the list you will see a group of TS entries with the name of your remote client computer and the designation PRN followed by a number e.g. “TS001 (“client computername”: PRN1)”.
- Select one of these designated by the client computername as your printer port and proceed through the printer setup wizard using the driver you downloaded above.
- Must install .INF file
- Shut down remote session and open again.
