Terminal Server

By teo ·
I have installed terminal server on windows 2000. I unchecked the com port mapping in terminal server configuration (To allow the use of com port on the workstation)

I logon to the terminal server from winodws 98 using the terminal client. After logon, at the server, I try to add a printer, at the port selection, I cannot see the workstaion com port. I only see the worksation lpt port. Is there some settings that need to be done ?

Thank you

Only LPT printers will be mapped. From what I have seen COM Printers will not work. I have no clue how the TS Client treats USB port printers.

If the com port's are not showing up, but the lpt ports are, try errouting an lpt port to the com port via the mode command (ex. mode lpt3:=com1) That way your com port will show up as an lpt port and you should be able to map it correctly.

I believe you can from the client use serial
ports. I am using citrix and that client has the ability to utilize the serial port. So of the our users like to replicate email to their palm-pilots and from a thin client this is much needed. It canbe done.
