All printers in the company are installed with correct drivers via IP (creating ports in windows on TS, etc) - this is the best course of action because I can setup the printers the way I want and they will display on on everyone that logs in (with those settings). ALL WORK FINE to these printers if selected by user...
When anyone logs on it creates a session to the local printers of the client also. It also pulls the default printer across on a sessions - annoying!
I have possibly 100 people logged in and thats a lot of printers showing on everyones 'printers and faxes'. Huge confusion!!
THE ANSWER IS...
I have tried creating a Remote Desktop Icon for everyone turning off the local resource for printers, can i turn this off without manually changing everyones, i.e. via GP? or setting on TS not allowing it?
be shared out?? I believe by default when a printer is attached to a local machine it
is autmatically ready to be shared with any other machine in the same Workgroup or
Try going to a workstation that has a local printer and go into printers & faxes and hit
the properties on that printer.. I bet it will be displayed as shared, even though nobody
actually set it to be shared.. Just an idea.
