-Ideally if you are planning to run System Five over terminal services, plan on purchasing networkable printers that have built in network cards, and configure your remote locations to connect using a VPN with fixed (static) external IP Addresses. In this manner, all printers look like they are on the same network, and the remote computers will print to them as though they exist on the server'​s local network. This is more reliable, and easier to configure and maintain the connections than trying to use remote printing. This method would apply to both laser printers and thermal receipt printers. ​+Ideally if you are planning to run System Five over terminal services, plan on purchasing networkable printers that have built in network cards, and configure your remote locations to connect using a VPN with fixed (static) external IP Addresses.

Also the only driver involved would be the one on the server, so the Microsoft Easy Print Driver will not intercept the print job.
