The port that the printer driver was installed on is not one of the ports forworded by Terminal Server (TS for short) by default. I used the fix that allows DOT 3-4 ports to be forwarded (typically HP printers) by modifying the regestry which is supposed to forward ALL ports if I'm reading the fix correctly. Click here see the MS Support Page.
To force the printer driver to be placed on another port, I installed a Linksys Printserver (PSUS4) with 1x USB printer support and a 4x port switch. I then gave the Printserver a static IP address and then added the printer locally by adding a TCP printing port that links to the static IP. By doing this, I was still able for print and fax from the local machine; in terminal server I was now able to printer; but I lost the function that allows scanning to the computer from the MFC-printer. Apparently this function requires a USB hookup to the computer.
Well thats the history... now here is the question. Before I go out and spend the money on buying the parts, I am wondering if you guys think it is possible to place a USB hub right after the printer, then from the hub connecting to the computer on one USB cable and to the printserver on another USB cable. Do you think the printer will have a problem being split into 2 directions? The printer is typically only used by one person, so there shouldn't ever be a time where activity will be going over the printserver USB connection and the computer USB connection at the same time.
I thank you ahead of time for your opinions, I know this is not a common problem, but hopefully with you're guy's help we can find a solution to this unique problem.
