Hello,

We currently have some problem with windows 2003 Terminal server and Redirected Printer (RDP). When users connect Themself on the server the printers are also created. The problem come when the same user is being kicked out from the session or the session is locked down. The printer stay on the server and a new one is create when user is connecting back on the server.

Sincerely your,

i'm assuming you mean that when users log on to the terminal server, their local printer is being installed as well.....

Use group policy to prevent this ---->  User config/administrative tools/control panel/printers/ and enable the "addition of printers"

also, on the terminal server ----> open "terminal services configuration" from administrative tools. click on "connections" in the left window, right click on "RDP-tcp" and select properties.  Go to the "client settings" tab and you have the option to disable several things including remote printers
