    W2K, SP4 Terminal services. My remote users will work for
    a while (days, weeks) and then suddenly they log on and
    there are no printers for them to use. Once I reset the
    server the printers are again available. What is wrong
    that this keeps happening? How can I make the printers
    available every time they log on?

    Check the printer spooler on the terminal server, which is probably stopping. You can set the printer spooler service to automatically restart on failure. This may be caused by bad print drivers being loaded on the TS. Check here for more info:
