Help with Terminal Server
Posted on 2006-11-15
Issue # 1
I am using VPN on a PC running Windows XP to access our system.Once connected, I use Remote Desktop to connect to our terminal server.
Problem: At this point, I would like to print to my local printer, but I can't even see it. I do have it shared.
Issue # 2
I have several applications installed on a terminal server.
Most of them are accessed by the users from the desktop which is in All Users of Documents and Settings on the terminal server.
Problem: Most of the users need access to most of these app but I have some users that should have access to only a few of these apps. What is required to clean this up without setting off access to the apps that they need? And are there groups of some type that I should utilize to organize the majority of the users and apps?
Issue # 3
I have some users that log into the network through RDP sometimes and other times via a PC running XP.
Problem: Because most of the apps are installed on the terminal server and their PC they have duplicate icons on their desktop. After I resolve Issue # 2, what else do I have to do? How does Roaming Profiles affect this?
