Stop remote users re-direct printer to workstation printer

Postby chicagotech » Mon Sep 25, 2017 4:57 pm

We have two processing servers running on Windows 2008 R2 as RD servers. The users login the RD servers to run an application and then send print jobs to defauld printer on the RD server. The problem is the print job will be sent to remote workstation default printer if the users enable Printers on the RDP Local Resource.

Is there a way to block the remote users re-direct the printer to their workstation default printer even if they check Printers on the RDP Local Resource?

From your description, I learned that you want to know how to block the remote users re-direct the printer to their workstation default printer in RDS server on Windows Server 2008 R2. If I misunderstood anything, please feel free to let me know.

Based on my research, you can try the steps below:

To configure per connection printer redirection settings on a terminal server by using Group Policy

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.In either the Group Policy Management Console or the Local Group Policy Editor, locate the following node:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Printer Redirection

2.Configure the desired printer redirection settings:
◦ To disable client printer redirection, enable the Do not allow client printer redirection policy setting.

◦ To use the default printer of the server as the default printer for all client sessions, enable the Do not set default client printer to be default printer in a session policy setting.

For more information about the settings of Configuring Printer Redirection Settings, please check the link below to know it:
