Printing and Remote Printer Drivers

Printing from your Diamond Discovery Hosted Desktop is only possible using the Net2Printer application, which must be installed and running on your PC or laptop before you connect to your desktop.

Printing is the most technically challenging aspect of a remote desktop environment and is made possible by the use of remote printer driver software. Our chosen software provider is Net2Printer and the software must be installed on your PC or laptop before you can print from our platform. The installation and configuration is simple and the software will sit silently in the background on your PC or laptop.
