Force a printer on a Terminal Server to be your default printer?
Posted on 2010-09-03
We have some business partners that connect to a Server remotely via an SSL connection and then with Remote Desktop Connection.
The connection is working fine; but, the users need to use a specific application on this Server(that is they they are remotely connecting to us). Then if one would like to print from that application one needs to manually change the default printer to be 'printer1', when they logon to the Terminal Server.
The problem is that the users need to change their default printer to be 'printer1' every time they logon to the Server. Currently when they connect the remote PC's actual default printer is set as the default printer, in the user’s terminal logon session. That is why the user needs to manually change the default printer to be ‘printer1’ every time they logon.
Shouldn’t the default printer stay with the user account settings? In this case the user account that is used to logon to the Terminal Server. Is there a way to force it to remember the default printer 'printer1' for the next time they logon?
