Share USB printer from teacher PC, through server 2008 R2, to 27 workstations
I've got a suite of 27 PC's that I want to share a USB printer to thats attached to the teacher PC.
I can't share directly with the workstations as Win 7 has the 10 user session limit on networking.
Previously in the XP & 2003 Days, I have simply shared the printer on the Teacher PC, Added the shared printer to the server (2003) and Re-shared to the workstations.
This worked without any problems...
So in windows 7 and 2008 R2 I've done the same process and added the x64 and x86 drivers to the teacher PC, and Server.
I can send jobs from the server to the teacher pc - and it works.
I can send jobs from a workstation to the server - and they appear on the queue on the server, giving the error "the document failed to print" - "error printing"
If I connect a workstation directly to the teacher PC share, it works fine too.
Only when I go from Workstation ---> Server ------> Teacher PC ---> Printer it fails with the "error printing"
Anyone got any ideas...?? I wondered if it could be a x86 to x64 to x86 problem. So I tried our old 2003 x86 server too and get the same result :(
