Local printer in terminal server session

Fred

Hi,
I have a problem on a terminal server Win2K SP3.
When client opening a session on the server, the LPT1
local printer is not created in the TS Session ???
All seems to be correctly configured.
Can you help on that ? any ideas ?
Thanks
Fred

Hi Fred,
There are two options I can give you to check on.
1. Make sure the printer driver for the local printer you
are reffering to is installed on the Terminal Server. If
the server does not have the correct driver the printer
creation will fail.
2. Check your Terminal Server Configuration to make sure
that printer mapping is active for RDP Connections.

To me it sounds like you do not have the correct driver
for the printer on the server, but you can check both.

This sounds a bit similar to a problem that we had (TS on Win2K) - the
clients sometimes mapped to the correct default printer and sometimes they
didn't.

I think that the problem is due to delays in the RDP passing the information
relating to the local printer settings back to the TS. The default printer
was set to a printer available to the server if it couldn't get information
from the client quickly enough. I eventually added a bit of code to the
login script to let the user know what their default printer is set to and
to give them the option to change the setting before they went any further.

Simon.

You may also check the Event Viewer to check for error messages and get some
information why the printer is not redirected.
