    a user reported that "my printer at home remotely receives documents in
    “spoolâ€. I disconnect my printer and still get a lot of print jobs. Last
    count was 6,078 print jobs."

    Using RWW on SBS2003 Std.

    Thanks for any help.

  2. Hi Bruce,

    Thanks for posting in our newsgroup.

    From your description, I know that your customer receives a lot of print
    jobs in printer spooling pool. If I am off-base, please don¡¯t hesitate to
    let me know.

    Please let me know the following to make the situation more clearly:

    Does the problem occur on one user or some users?

    Based on my research, when you visit Terminal Server via RWW, you can print
    documents from the remote computer to a local print. This brings many
    benefits to us. At the same time, the users can see many network printers,
    not their own. Some users may mistakenly print their jobs to your
    customer¡¯s printer, so he receives many print jobs in printer spooling
    pool.

    Please take the following steps to narrow down this issue:

    Step 1: Rename the printer. After your printer has a different name, the
    print job may not send to you.

    1. Click Start and then select Printer and Faxes.
    2. Right click your printer and select Rename.

    Step 2: Set printer permission.

    1. Click Start and then select Printer and Faxes.
    2. Right click your printer and select Properties.
    3. On the Security tab, select Everyone and click Remove.
    4. Click OK.

    Step 3: You can see the owner of each printer job, please inform the user
    not to send wrong print job to your printer.

    Step 4: The problem may be cause by virus, please update the Anti Virus
    software to the latest signature and than scan the system.

    Hope above information helps.

    If you need further assistance, please don¡¯t hesitate to let me know.


    Best regards,

  3. Login Issue

    Hi Robert,

    I am getting the same problem; as soon as I use RDC and log in to our Windows 2003 server, the default printer then has a print job added to it ("Remote Desktop Redirected Printer Doc"). I'm not sure what this could be, but the owner of it is the active directory user account of whoever logs in, i.e. me and one other guy.

    It's really odd and I think it slightly differs to the synopsis above.

    Regards

    Phil

  4. RE: Login Issue

    Hello Philip,

    Thank you for your post.
    My name is Gary Wang, and it is my pleasure to work with you on this issue!
    Please allow me to confirm that my understandings are correct. As I
    understand it, the issue is:

    Your default printer will add a job named as "Remote Desktop Redirected
    Printer Doc" after RDC connection established.

    If I have misunderstood your concerns please feel free to let me know.

    Suggestion :
    ==============
    Firstly I would like to double confirm that if you are using Windows Small
    Busniess Server 2003but not Windows Server 2003 . If not, I would suggest
    that use the Microsoft public newsgroups for Windows Server
    2003(microsoft.public.windows.server.general) which would be the most
    relevant newsgroup for your question.

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/newsgroups/dgbrowser/en-us/defaul
    t.mspx?dg=microsoft.public.windows.server.general


    If yes, please open RDC, you should see an "Optional" link below the list
    box. Click it and you should see a list of options. Navigate to Local
    Resources tab, make sure "Enable documents on the remote computer to be
    printed on a local printer" is checked.

    In most cases, there're 3 possible causes for such issues:

    Cause 1:

    The local printer's driver is not for Windows Server 2003, you must install
    the driver for the printer on the Server before using the printer
    redirection feature in RWW or Remote Desktop.

    To do so:
    1. Click Start and click Printers and Faxes.
    2. Click File menu and click Server Properties.
    3. Click Drivers tab and click Add button.
    4. Follow the wizard and complete adding the printer driver on the server.

    Cause 2:

    This printer's port does not begin with COM/LPT/USB. If this is the point,
    please follow KB 302361 to solve the problem.

    Printers That Use Ports That Do Not Begin With COM, LPT, or USB Are Not
    Redirected in a Remote Desktop or Terminal Services Session
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/302361

    Cause 3:

    Make sure that your printer is compatible with Windows Server 2003, please
    check the HCL list:
    http://www.microsoft.com/hcl

    Here is more information about this issue. I want to introduce the
    following utility to you.

    Terminal Server Printer Driver Redirection Wizard v.1.0.80

    This tool will examine a remote or local Terminal Server and determine
    whether or not printer redirection has failed. For each printer driver that
    failed redirection, the tool will prompt the user to select an installed
    driver to create a new NTPrintSubs.inf file.

    862E-38A094EEEAF7&displaylang=en

    For more information regarding this feature, you can take a look at the
    following KB articles:

    818758 White Paper: Terminal Services and Printing
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=818758

    Hope it helps

    I look forward to your reply. Also, if you have any questions or concerns,
    please do not hesitate to let me know. I am happy to help. :)

    Thank you for your time and cooperation!

  5. Hi Samir:

    In case you can follow posts that make it here, can you let us know what you
    are replying to and where you found the post?

    Either it is very old, or it just mindlessly copies here with no clue as to
    what it is about.

    Because you're using techarena instead of direct posting to the newsgroup we
