Did you check the Windows Event Logs for any information? Usually you'll see some error there
after connecting - in many cases the error will be regarding missing drivers, like your quote
suggests. You will in that case have to download the appropriate drivers from the website
of your printer's brand (HP, Canon, Brother etc.), and install them onto the remote server
to which you are connecting).
