Got a weird one here.

Have a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard server because of a application specific demand that all Mac OS X 10.6+ are using....

They remote in with CoRD cause I have not figured out the MAC OS X bug with Microsoft's MAC RDP application.

The issue at hand is they have local printers in there home but I am unsure how they can be remote desktop into the Windows Server and be able to send the print request back to the local printer in the home.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

I'm not following here... Are you wanting to print from the RDP'd server to your local Mac workstation? –  Canadian Luke Aug 23 '12 at 17:18
They RDP to the windows server, they access the application, they need to print items from that application to their local printer –  Dan Aug 23 '12 at 17:19
Alright, understood. However, I'm not sure I know CoRD well enough to know... I don't believe MS supports it –  Canadian Luke Aug 23 '12 at 17:27
Do you have forward printers enabled in cord and have the printer drivers installer on the server? –  Joe van Maldegiam Aug 26 '12 at 20:42
