Thinfinity Remote Desktop uses a PostScript Printer Driver.
Depending on the remote desktop’s Windows version you are connected to, it is necessary to set a different PostScript Printer Driver:

  • HP Color LaserJet 2800 Series PS driver is compatible with 2008 Windows versions.
  • HP Color LaserJet 8500 PS driver is compatible with 2003 Windows versions.
  • Microsoft XPS Document Writer V4 driver is compatible with Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

Once you are connected to the remote desktop and the printer is enabled, you will be able to print from the remote desktop to a local printer, by choosing the ThinRDP Printer from the available printers:
