Hi,

If I login into my terminal services server (Windows 2000 sp4) as
administrator, I can see and print in the local printers of the users
currently connected to the terminal server. But if I connect as a normal
user, I can see only the printer attached to my PC. How can I do for a
normal terminal server user to "see" and print into the printer of other
normal user?

Thanks in advance
Sammy

You can't. This is by design.
If multiple users have a need to print to a particular printer, make
the printer available as a shared printer in the network.

The printer is shared on the PC (Windows XP) connected to the internet
through an ADSL connection on a remote place. I connect to the terminal
server from the office's LAN as administrator and can see and print into the
remote printer. If I connect as a member of the "Power Users" group (local
group at the terminal services PC) I can also see and print the remote
printer. If I connect as a normal user I can see only my printers.
I don't want to add the user that needs this functionality to the power
user's group. What rights or policies should I activate to allow this user
print on the remote printer?

Thanks for the reply
Sammy

Yes, I understand your question, and the answer is still the same:
you can't do this.
The redirected printer is autocreated from scratch on every
connection. So it's no use to modify the security settings on the
redirected printer itself, or give the users additional rights to
manage printers. They will still not be on the Access Control List
for the redirected printer. Only Power Users, Administrators and
the owner of the printer is on the ACL of the printer.

Install the printer on the Terminal Server. Then you can modify the
security settings and give all users permission to use it.

Hi Sammy,

I Don't know if you're looking for a solution like this but if it's an XP
computer (and I think only pro...). You can set up a local printer on the
server printing to an LPR port on the remote computer. Ofcourse a jetdirect
box orso could help you here as well. The trick is that you need a fixed ip
address or dynamic dns updating correctly!

Hope this will help you?!

Gabriel.

Ok, I got that. But I wonder is it posible to cook a script that
automatically adds some users on the ACL of the redirected printer?

I can't. I need to send prints to the remote user :-(


Thanks for your patience

No idea. Never tried. You might ask in a scripting newsgroup.

Yes, I understand that. What I mean is: make a connection to the
printer from the Terminal Server. Since the printer is shared on
the workstation, you should be able to install the printer on the
Terminal Server as a network printer. Then all users of the
Terminal Server will be able to use this network printer.

Sorry, it is some misunderstanding here: the printer is shared, but it is
attached to the remote PC connected to terminal server. I can't browse that
remote PC from my terminal server...

OK, I see. Unfortunately, then I wouldn't know how to do what you
want.
