I am currently testing azure VD for my company and I need to print locally using Azure VD.

What do I need to do to make sure I can detect my local printers in the remote host?

Thanks!

    No, only copy/paste from the clipboard is supported. Azure Bastion really is not designed for this purpose. You can do printer redirection over a regular RDP connection however (outside of Azure Bastion).

    @Trevor Rhoads

    Are you using AVD as a jump host. Or actually using Azure bastion first?
    AVD supports local printer redirection enabling users to print to their own local printers. Please check this document for details.

    Hope this helps.
