We use printing through Terminal Services (print from a Terminal server through the internet to a local PC) but recently have purchased accounting software which the vendor has said we have had to enable the following group policy

"disable printing redirect through terminal services",

this is to stop the automatic printer redirect feature in windows server 2008 from appearing.

What we want is to still be able to pring the old way by choosing TS 0x PRN Workstation port, but we cant because of this Group Policy.

Is there away to enable printhing through terminal services TS 0x PRN port BUT stop the auto "easy print" feature offered in 2008???

First -- Would you please share more information about this accounting application -- particularly vendor and version information.  This would help many other people -- possibly even decide that don't want to run an application in terminal server because of this limitation.

Second -- Could you show the exact code or screen image from your GP that disables the printing.

Third -- Have you investigated the "Redirect only the default client printer" option?

Finally -- for a possible compromise/work-around:  Are your TS customers remote where they must print from their own local printer or could the server possibly print to a LAN printer they can also reach?
