Print Problems using Terminal Services

By Hershel Dunne ·
I am having trouble getting several printers to work with Terminal Services that are attached to the physical machine at the remote location. There are 5 machines there and each one of them has a printer attached. The users are trying to play musical machines on me and everytime they do this, they are unable to print on the machine they recently moved to because the printer was initially installed for a different user on that machine. In the past, I have been able to delete the printer driver on the local machine while logged in as that user and then reinstall the driver while logged in as that user, and the user has been able to print from within terminal services. I cannot seem to get that to work on the machine in question now. If anyone has any ideas on how to resolve this problem or to prevent it in the future I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Print Problems using Terminal Services

You can try setting the printers up using a machine connection rather than a user connection. Anyone who logs in to the machine will have access to the printer. Tis can be done with the following command.
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry/ga /c\\workstation /n\\printserver\printername /j"LanMan Print Services"

Substitue the pertinent information for your Workstation and server\printer
