When accessing a server through terminal services it requires user to set the default printer each and every time they reopen the server.  How can I fix this?  OS is Win2K

It seems to me that you do not have a default printer installed on your server.  So, if you set a default printer on your server then the client will not need to require the user to set one each time they log onto the server

If you double click on the Remote Desktop Connection then click on the "Options" button then click on the Local Resources tab.  Is the Printers checkbox checked (under Local devices and resources)?  If it is, do you want this box checked?
