terminal service printing



Clients connect to a Windows 2000 terminal server using
Remote Desktop Connection. In the advanced option, there
is a 'Local Resources' tab. Check marked are 'Printers'.
This creates a session with capability to print
applications on the terminal server to their local printer.

Another client decided to print a document, but chose some
other session printer and the print was successful.

My question is: Is there a configuration, so that certain
sessioned printers can be used by certain users?

Any help would be appreciated.

problems, and the only solution is to take away their elevated
