Printer Mapping - HELP!!!


B

Bob Showalter

I just don't see what is going on here.
1. I have only one printer installed on my system.
2. I reboot the Terminal Server to insure there are no
hanging sessions.
3. I log on to the terminal server.
4. When I check the printers dialog, it shows my printer
BUT...

When I look at which port it is connected to, it shows 2
TS ports for my computer, LPT1 and PRN0. And invariably,
the printer is hooked to PRN0 and will not print. If I
manually switch it over to LPT1 it will print. But my
users do not have sufficient rights to do such a thing
(and shouldn't have to anyway).

The other oddity is that one port seems to be from a brand
new session, TS01 right after a reboot. The other seems
to be from some old session TS33. How can I get rid of
that old one so that I only get one port showing up when I
connect.

Thanks very much for whatever gleenings you can provide.

Patrick,

I read everything on the page you referenced along with
the links (I am still working on the chapter from Brian
Madden's book.

I don't see anything that really addresses the issue of
why I am seeing two ports being mapped for my system when
there is only one printer installed.

I admit, I am pretty new to TS and it is a kind of learn
as I go adventure. My remote system has nothing mapped to
prn0 (at least that is obvious). And there is only one TS
session active. Yet I still get the two mappings for
redirection:

TS33 mapped as prn0
TS01 mapped as lpt1 (where the device is connected)

Thanks again if you have any ideas.
