printer redirections not working !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




When I connect with MSTSC.exe to the Terminal Server, my local network
printers are not redirected to my Session. I only can see that some
new Ports (TS00nn) are created in my session.

For 2 days I read all Microsoft KB articles and Newsgroup. I
implemented a user-defined ntprintsubs.inf and defined the entries
needed. In the System event log I don't have any Events 1111, 1105,
and 1106!!.

I have the following setup:
winxp/sp1 workstation
Network Printers:
HP LaserJet 4000 Series PS
HP LaserJet 2100 Series PS
HP LaserJet 4300 PS
HP C LaserJet 4500-PS

W3K Terminal Server
printer redirection enabled by GPO

Why are the printers not autocreated in my session?????
Are Postscript drivers supported ??

thanks for your feedback, Dani




I would suggest:
1. Make sure you use the exact same driver on the server and the client.
2. Install each type of printing device on the server to LPT1 as you will be
using on the client.
3. And you may need to inlcude the registry entry listed below which is
covered under MS article# 302361

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Terminal Server Client Default AddIns

Hope this helps,
