-Easy Print appears to pose a problem with trying to re-direct RAW text-based print jobs to the re-directed printer. The symptom is the print job starts, but nothing is printed. Graphic based print jobs however print fine using Easy Print. The solution for printing text based print jobs from a Windows 2008 Terminal Server is to make the following Group Policy change so that the Easy Print driver is not the preferred driver choice when adding the re-directed printer for a Terminal Server session. Open the Group Policy Administrator on the 2008 Server by clicking START RUN and typing **GPEDIT.MSC**. ​ Browse to the following folder (Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Printer Redirection) and set to **Disable** Use Terminal Services Easy Print printer driver first:+Easy Print appears to pose a problem with trying to re-direct RAW text-based print jobs to the re-directed printer.
