Terminal Service Printer Issue 2003 Server

By sailingma ·
I am using LPT printers. The software I use uses the printer name to print to. But when the client disconnects, and reconects the printer name changes from Printer (Session 1) to Printer (Session 2) and the port changes. I am using XPPro clients. I have tried setting it up on the server side but then the port becomes inactive but the name stays the same. The printers are shared.. And drivers are are on both server and client. Using server in workgroup configuation... How do you kepp the printer name from changing on new logins?

Install the printers on the server ...

... not using the TS ports \\tsclient\printer1, etc. rather using their network UNC, \\workstationname\sharename

or use jet-direct boxes so you can access the printers from the server by IP
