I want my Terminal Services Client to see only their local printer queue. How can I hide the print queues of other clients and the printers installed locally on the TS? This is for Windows 2000 TS.

Are the users members of the Administrators or Power Users groups?  If so they have default access to any printers that populate on the machine.  I am running applications on my servers that require power user access so I have set up a script that removes the power users from the ACL on all TermServ printers.  If this sounds like this might be your issue I can provide the script.

For any local printers on the machine you can also modify the ACL on the printer to include only a single user account (a domain admin or something) that can modify or print to the device.  To modify the ACL just:

Go the the start menu
Go to Settings
Select Printers
Right Click on the printer
Select the security tab
Add and remove users at your leisure.

Hope this helps
