Changing Printer Ports and Terminal Server
Posted on 2007-08-03
I have a client who is using a Hosted Terminal Server Solution, the hosted server is running SBS2003 and client is connecting to TS via Remote Desktop, client is running XP Professional on local machines.
In the office there is a Laser Printer that is attached to one PC and is shared so other office PC's can use. When connecting to the Terminal Server the printer maps across OK but sometimes after a period of time the printer port in Terminal Services is showing the port as Inactive TS port, even though the correct port is available from the list. And therefore I have to manual assign the printer port, causing a time delay for my client.
Does anyone know how to stop Terminal Services from changing the port to which the printer is allocated
For your information the 'Hosted Terminal Server' is a server that we rent from a larger company and is out of office in remote location.
