Terminal Server Group Policy

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.group_policy (More info?)

Hi everyone!

We have W2k3 with terminal server on another domain name with a trust
relationship and the users can connect and work without any trouble the only
one problem is the printer redirection.
On the TS with W2K3 we made a GP for the local mashine and we made avaiable
the TS LPT redirecction and printing etc. But we don't know why the users
they don't get any redirecction.

Regards,
Luciano

    Don't know what happened to you, but would this be a cause...

    Comp Config\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal
    Services\Client/Server data redirection\Do not allow client printer
    redirection

    At least Microsoft Windows XP Terminal Services

    "Specifies whether to prevent the mapping of client printers in Terminal
    Services sessions. You can use this setting to prevent users from
    redirecting print jobs from the remote computer to a printer attached to
    their local (client) computer. By default, Terminal Services allows this
    client printer mapping. If the status is set to Enabled, users cannot
    redirect print jobs from the remote computer to a local client printer in
    Terminal Services sessions. If the status is set to Disabled, users can
    redirect print jobs with client printer mapping. If the status is set to
    Not Configured, client printer mapping is not specified at the Group Policy
    level. However, an administrator can still disable client printer mapping
    using the Terminal Services Configuration tool."

    For printer redirection to work, the Terminal Server must have already
    installed, a driver for the printer make and model being redirected.

    You might try posting to the microsoft.public.win2000.printing or
    microsoft.public.windows.terminal_services.

    It's perfectly useless to know the right answer to the wrong question.
