    As far as I know I have everything set up on the Linux end of things, but I cannot figure out how to add the printer to Windows in order to actually use it.  My set up is using a Linux client to connect to a desktop shared on a Windows 10 system.  I have added the USB printer attached to the Linux client to that system’s printer settings and selected it to be forwarded via NoMachine to the Windows server (also, have it set to connect automatically), however I do not see anyway to actually use the printer on the Windows server.  It does not show up as a printer that has been already added (nor does a generic device along the lines of “NoMachine Printer”), and it does not show up when trying to add a new printer in Windows.  I tried letting Windows find a network printer, and I tried selecting a local device manually in Windows Control Panel.

    How does the printer forwarding work and what am I missing here?




    You should be able to forward a printer during the session via NoMachine Player settings. Go to Devices -> Connect a printer and there you should see all the available printers. Click on your local printer and connect it to the server. If the printers don’t show up there, please gather logs from both sides as described here:

    You can also show us how you tried to forward the printer by attaching a screenshot of each step.
