USB Printer redirection not working

Post by chris@tagsol.co.za »

Printer redirection not working, added the line printer=usb to the WTware configuration file.
Nothing showing on the RDS server, other Windows users redirected printers showing.

What can I do to troubleshoot the problem?
Created the Pi terminal with the latest version of the WTware software, using a Brother HL-6180DW laser printer, Windows Server 2016.

Thanks
Chris

I have read the manual, can't see what I am missing.
Where do I find the log file that will provide me with more info?

For printer= parameter, nothing should appear on server. You should add network printer on server, manually.
