14.2.9 Remote Desktop Protocol: Print Virtual Channel Extension

The Remote Desktop Protocol: Print Virtual Channel Extension (as specified in [MS-RDPEPC]) specifies the communication used to enable the redirection of printers between a terminal client and a terminal server. By redirecting printers from the terminal client to the terminal server, applications running on a server machine can access the remote devices as if they were local printers. This protocol handles redirection of printing tasks, while the Remote Desktop Protocol: XPS Print Virtual Channel Extension (as specified in [MS-RDPEXPS]) handles printer-driver related tasks, such as displaying the status of the redirected printer.

Essentially a subprotocol within Remote Desktop Protocol: File System Virtual Channel Extension, the Remote Desktop Protocol: Print Virtual Channel Extension follows the initialization of the Remote Desktop Protocol: File System Virtual Channel Extension (as specified in [MS-RDPEFS]) to enable printer redirection. It also shares many messages and common data types already specified in [MS-RDPEFS].
