We have a Windows 2003 Standard SP2 server that we remote into. This server runs reports that pull it's formating in from the default printer setting. When we remote in, the default printer gets mapped to the client. that thorws the report format off. I want to either stop that, via a reg setting on the client, or server. We have Terminal server running, but I am am not sure as to how to block it from mapping to the remote users printer. To be clear, stopping all remote client printer mapping viz RDC is fine, we dont use that function. We run XP pro SP3 or Windows 7.

Hey,

Try this in ADUC, open a user and go to the Environment tab. Uncheck “Connect client
printers at logon”. This setting will override the client settings.

    Found the answer in AD under computer configuration admin templates windows components terminal services do not set default client printer to be printer in session "enabled" we had a app running that prints mailing labels out and it would set the dim of the label to be the same as the default printer which when we would remote into it would be a network printer with 8x11 paper. not a 4x1 label if it helps anyone there is the answer
