Terminal Service Client Printing

By ko.endo ·
I have an issue with the TS printing redirect. The Remote Desktop does not pickup the local printer. The drivers are on both the client and the server (Win2K). The latest RDs are installed on the client. I had an initial issue with TS connecting with the client but we figured it out as a port problem being "hijacked" by a rogue program. Does anyone know if there is a registry setting that may block the redirect?

Do you have the check box for Printers in 'Local Resources' checked?

Troubleshooting printing on TS always follows this way.

1. Try the first suggestion you got about the printing checkbox.
2. After the user connects, check the event viewer on the terminal server. Most likely the error will show up here. Probably need a reinstall of printer drivers.
3. On the Terminal server make sure "LPT Port Mapping" is not disabled. administrative groups, Terminal Services configuration, RDP-Tcp.

I resolved this issue by blowing off the server install and upgrading to SBS2003. However, now I have a new problem, SBS only runs Remote Admin mode and no Terminal server capabilities! I am now setting up a different Win2K Server to host the Term Server with the existing CALs on the SBS2K3.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp

edit the "portnumber" key. for example "reg_dword 0x000003d3(3389)"
3389 can be change to a different port number and TS will listen on that port. the client will then put in the ipaddress of " port number". this will at least get TS of the default port and prevent futher hi jacking of the port.
