Network printers showing up multiple times



  • 1. Too many printers mapped
    With RDP 5.2, network printers are mapped which is great. However, every printer on every client is connected. With 40 - 50 users logged often logged in at any given time, there are hundreds of printer sessions. I beleive this is causing the server too be sluggish. Is there any way to have only their default printer mapped?
  • 2. Remote Desktop does not work with Automated login.
    I set up a "kiosk" Win XP Pro machine and automated the login, via the registry, so the kiosk user in our domain automatically logs on when the machine is turned on. I cannot remote into this machine when this happens. However if I hold the shift key down during Windows bootup and log on manually as that same user I can remote in no problem. Is there any way to get Remote working with the automated login? Thanks for any help on this. Dawn
  • 3. After two days terminal server disconnects users?
    I have windows 2000 terminal server supporting approximately 10 users from different remote (3) sites. All users are connecting by Cisco 1710 VPN tunnel. All sites have WIN3K DC. Terminal server runs on HP TC4100, CPU 1.2 Ghz, RAM 1.3GB. After two days or so terminal server drops all connections, all other services continue to work fine (email, network drives, print server from different servers), after reboot it works perfect, for two or so days. Any clues? Thank you, Confused
  • 4. Licensing problem
    I have an interesting issue with licensing. A couple months ago I had a terminal server with TS licensing running, on this server I had 25 CAL's installed. Recently we changed the Domain that that server belonged to, to another domain that had a licening server installed on. Appearently we lost the 25 CAL's off of the computer and now I want to get those onto the new server. Can anyone tell me if I will run into any problems when I install these licenses onto the new licensing server? Thank you in advance for your advice.

Network printers showing up multiple times

Say you have a network with some printers attached

When we are running our app through Terminal Server and the user goes
to print a documnet the list of printers becomes

Is there anyway to have Terminal Service filter out the printers for
other users?

1.Network Printer not shown in Add Printer Wizard

Hi, I am completing the to-do list and now I am required to install a 
printer. We have a Brother 5170ND networked printer (it has NIC card), 
however when completing the add printer wizard this is not shown when 
scanning the network. I have tried installing the drivers first and this 
finds the printer but fails on "PRINTER - OPERATION COULD NOT BE COMPLETED. 
THE SPECIFIED PORT IS UNKNOWN). I know the IP address for the printer. I 
would appreciate any help you can offer.

2.Vista 64 system tray shows no network or UPS after latest update

Vista 64, 2GB, Pentium D, fully patched - which may be the problem - and 
client for WHS PP1 on a Shuttle SS31T.

After the latest updates the system tray on my Vista 64 workstation is 
showing that the network (NIC is SiS 190, all parameters via DHCP, IPv4 only 
- IPv6 is disabled) is disconnected and the UPS (APC via USB) is not present 
- both have red Xs. But both are there as a quick trip to Device Manager 
shows. And I wouldn't be typing this if the network were faulty.

There's nothing of interest in the event logs. Disconnecting and 
reconnecting makes no difference for either. I've tried repairing the network 
connection and re-detecting hardware, all to no avail.

So which updates has / have caused this error?



3.Vista 64 system tray shows no network or UPS after latest upda portable mp3 player shows up multiple times in contents pane in

In WMP10, my current portable mp3 player shows up 3 times. Also, my old mp3 
player which I no longer own still shows up. This is connected with 
formatting my portable mp3 player, and reloading it again with music from 
scratch in WMP10. Any ideas how to remove all the devices from WMP10 so I can 
restart? I found this info on the README file for wmp10 (see below) -- 
however the "right click & delete" mentioned in the last sentence does not 
work for me.  I also tried reinstalling, but the devices were still there.

Thanks, Ron

Formatting a device may not remove the device category from your library
If you format a device, either in My Computer or by clicking the Format 
storage media button in the Items to Sync pane (the left side of Sync), all 
data is erased from the device. However, if a partnership existed between the 
Player and the formatted device, the device category may remain in the 
Contents pane in your library. The device category is created in the Contents 
pane when you synchronize content to a device for the first time. The 
category name is the same as the device name and the subcategories are the 
playlists that you selected to be synchronized.

If you connect the formatted device to your computer at a later time, 
Windows Media Player starts the Device Setup Wizard, which helps you set up 
automatic or manual synchronization between the Player and the device. A new 
device category will be created in the Contents pane when you synchronize 
content to the device under this new partnership. If duplicate device 
category names appear in the Contents pane, either rename the device or 
delete the old device category.

To rename the device, do the following:
On the Tools menu, click Options.
On the Devices tab, click the portable device in the Devices list, and then 
click Properties.
On the Synchronize tab, in the Device name box, enter a new name for the 
Refresh the Contents pane by clicking another feature tab in the Player 
(such as Now Playing), and then clicking Library.
The new device name category is displayed in the Contents pane.
To delete a device name category, do the following:
In the Contents pane, right-click the device name category that you want to 
delete, and then click Delete.

5.Recording Multiple Shows at the Same Time

I have a need to record up to 5 programs at the same time on different 
channels. Currently, we have 5 VCRs set up to do this, but they are a pain. 
How many tuners can Media Center handle at once? Can it handle 5?(as long as 
the computer has room for 5)
