Hi,

When one of my W2000 TS users is connecting to my system I receive the following error in my event log.

Driver HP DeskJet 670C Series Printer required for printer HP DeskJet 670C Series Printer is unknown. Contact the administrator to install the driver before you log in again.

Although the driver is on my TS, because I can create a printer locally.
All other users don't have this problem (but there is nobody with a HP 670C printer).

it sounds to me like the user who is having the problem does not have proper permissions to have this printer installed automatically?

And where can I check the permission of that particular user ?
The user is created on the domain controller, whitch is a NT4.0 data server.

-Check the Terminal server manager.. Right click RDP & click on permissions tab, check if the user has at least "user permissions".

I really can not find the options you specified.
When I start Terminal Server Manager, I can see users currently logged in into the system, sessions currently logged in.  If I right click on RDP (I suppose it is the RDP-TCP#### connection, I cannot find anything like permissions.

I think he meant Terminal Server Configuration in it also have a RDP and you can right click go to properties and one of the tabs or button allow you to set and view the permissions.

OK, in the Terminal Server Configuration I can see the RDP with user properties, but as I allready mentioned, my users are created on another server whitch is a my domain server.  So I do not see the users in this screen.

What OS is the client using?  TS uses the friendly name of the driver to map from Win9x to 2000.  If they are different, 2000 cannot create the printer.  Is the printer parallel or USB?

The client has Windows 98.
Printer is parallel.

This is the message I receive, so perhaps this should be the printer name on the Win98

Driver HP DeskJet 670C Series Printer required for printer HP DeskJet 670C Series Printer is unknown. Contact the administrator to install the driver before you log in again.

Or that is the name that Win98 is passing on and it is not in the list for 2000.

So if the friendly name being passed by the Win98 is "HP DeskJet 670C Series Printer"  2000 will not recognize it.  Try renaming the Win98 printer to the 2000 friendly name.
