W2K Term. Services dialup printing issue

By monte1972 ·
I'm dialing up from a remote location on a Win98 machine into RAS on a W2K server. After making that connection, I use the terminal services client to connect via rdp to the terminal services on this same W2K server. My problem is that my local printers are being automapped to the terminal services connection. I have printer and port mapping enabled on the terminal itself.

I'd also like to know if there is a way to map the lpt1 port of the terminal server to the local lpt port of my remote machine. I am running an app on the TS that prints diretly to the lpt port. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

W2K Term. Services dialup printing issue

In the Terminal Services Configuration tool, in the properties of the RDP connection, you can enable or disable client printer connection at logon, and lpt port mapping.

Hope this helps.
