Terminal Server 2003 printer management

By masonm ·
I helped a friend of mine setup a terminal server to run some software that their company uses. They have several offices that all connect to the same server, and they have network printers at each office setup on the server.
Right now I can prevent a user from one office printing to a printer in a different office using the printer permissions, but all of the printers still show up when they print a document.
Does anyone know of any way to limit the printers that are displayed on the terminal server based on the users login? To be clear, these printers are not shared from their PC?s, they are network printers that are installed locally on the Terminal Server.
Any help would be appreciated.

Local server printers

On the terminal server

remove everyone 'print' permission in security option of printer properties (Control panel->printers->right-click printer to choose prosperities->security option)



If this user is a member of administrator, please also remove 'print' permission for administrator group. To do so, you can hide printers installed on Terminal Server for the users that you want to hide. If you want to let some users to view a printer, just assign them the 'print' permission in security option of printer properties to these users.

Here is good overview of how Terminal printing can be setup
