You can only create an RPC connection when the driver on the machine sharing
the printer matches the client OS processor.
You will need to create a Local printer that will basically copy the print

Create Local printer, Add Local Port in the format
\\remotemachine\printshare, select the driver name of your OS architecture,
Next ,Next, Finish.
