How to add a client-attached printer within a TS client session manually

If the TS server you are connecting to has Windows Printer Mapping disabled, you can map your client LPT ports manually. To do this, go to TS Start>Settings>Printers>Add Printer>Local printer, clear the Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer check box, and then click Next. Under Port Selection, you see several ports named TSxxx. These are client mapped ports. Click the port that corresponds to your client computer's name and port, and then click Next. Continue to follow the instructions on your screen to complete the printer installation.

 

How to display a list of session and IDs

To display a list of sessions and their session IDs, type query user at the command line on the server, and then press ENTER. The following output is displayed.

How to disable changing display

 To disable Display, you have two choices. One is the Win 2000 regular way, Local Computer Policy>User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Control Panel>Display. Two, Run TS Configuration>Connections>RDP-Tcp>Properties>Environment>Client Wallpaper, check Disable Wallpaper.

How to assign permission to control other session remotely

Administrators, by default, can use Remote Control with other users' sessions. Users do not have this right. To give specific rights for groups other than Administrators: start the Terminal Services Configuration tool, double-click the connection you want to modify, click the Permissions>Advanced>Add. Specify the user or group you want to add so the user or group can use Remote Control. After adding the user or group, the Permission Entry dialog box appears. Click to select the Allow column for Remote Control.

How to initiate a Remote Control session

To initiate a Remote Control session: run a Terminal Server Client session to the Terminal Server. When the session is running, start Terminal Services Manager. Connect to the server on which the user is logged on. Right-click the user's name, and then click Remote Control. By default, the user is prompted to accept the Remote Control session. When the user accepts your request you can interact with the user's environment.

How to restrict TS users to a single remote session

1. With Server 2003, you can setup a policy to prevent a single user from creating multiple sessions on the Terminal Server using a single user account.
2. If you are running 2000, create a shared folder allowing only one connection, and then create a batch file to logoff the second session.

How to Print to a Local Network Printer in TS

By design, the TS doesn't supports the autocreation of local network printers. However, you may redirect the local network printer by mapping it to LPT port, which you may have to do if you're using a computer rental.

How to redirect TS client printers

By default,  local printers with COM, LPT, or USB ports will be redirected when a TS RDP 5 client logs on to a TS session. However, when clients connect to a TS session and the clients have network printers configured, the client's network printers are not redirected. If TS users need to print to a network printer, they may have two options. 1) The client may set up the network printer on the TS computer through the Add Printer Wizard and enable users to select and print to that printer. 2) Map a local port (LPT#) on the client side to the network path and install a printer driver on the TS computer.

If TS doesn't redirect the client printers, check the following:
1. Make sure the TS has the printer driver. If not, install it.
2. If the server does not find a matching driver name from those drivers that are currently installed, you may need to add the drive name into ntprint.inf. ntprint.inf is located in the %systemroot%inf.
3. We find some multifunction printer can't be redirected, especially if it uses DOT4 port. In this case, you may try to keep the DOT4 printer and create another printer (load printer drive only) on LPT1.
4. If you want to redirect a network printer, you can map it by using net use lpt# \\servername\printername /persistent:yes command.

How to setup a local printer for TS redirection

1) The TS should have the client's printer driver installed at the server.
2) The TS should have NetBIOS name resolution to the TS Client computer. If you have a domain network, you should use WINS for NetBIOS name resolution. If you cannot use WINS, then you may want to use a static IP address.
3) You need to share the local printer on the client computer.

How to switch applications between TS and local

When running full screen, you can use 1) Ctrl+Esc to show icons bar and then pick up the local application; 2) Alt+Tab to select application you want to; 3) Ctrl+Alt+Pause to part screen or full screen

How to Switch TS Mode

If you want to switch Remote Administration Mode to Application Mode, you must remove and reinstall Terminal Services using Add/Remove Programs.

How to use diskless computer to run windows terminal server

To run windows TS, you need to 1) create a boot floppy disk; 2)  modify  your DHCP server.  3) configure a windows TFTP server so that the clients can logon the TS.

How to use shadow command to remote monitor and control another's session

You can use the shadow command to view or actively control an active session of another user. If you actively control a user's session, you can input keyboard and mouse actions for that session. Shadow command syntax: shadow {session_name | session_id} [/server:server_name] [/v]

For example, to shadow session ID 2, type shadow 2. To shadow the session rdp-tcp#3, type shadow rdp-tcp#3.

How to redirect TS client printers
