Terminal Server Printer Redirection Problem

This alert condition indicates that there is an issue with the Terminal Server Printer Redirection. Users will face issues in printer mapping. Windows 2000 Terminal Services and Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services support the automatic redirection of printers that are configured to use local ports (such as LPT1, LPT2, or LPT3) on computers that have open client sessions through the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 5 client. This printer redirection occurs by default at logon. When a client logs on, the Windows 2000-based server or the Windows Server 2003-based server checks the name of the printer driver on the client and looks for the same printer driver name in the Ntprint.inf file. If the name of the driver is not found, the printer is not redirected.
