How about adding a remote printing option. That would make things easier if I could print from one machine to my printer.

Thanks for the suggestion. Remote printing is already registered in our list of enhancement requests. With that being said, I can't give an ETA on when it may make it into a build, but I certainly think it's a good idea and I'll give it a bump for you guys.

I'd just like to pipe up that I think this should be an optional module. Installing the unattended client shouldn't automatically add a printer to managed systems. Nor should on-demand sessions install a printer. This should be a separate install that we can opt to install/remove on specific clients as and when we need it. The less that gets modified on a client, the better, by default.

That said, an interim solution for folks desperate to print would be to install a (free) PDF generator, print to it, then use File Transfer to bring the PDF to the technician's end to reprint.
