How to Assign Printers to Terminal Server Clients


Terminal Server administrators may want to prevent their Terminal Server clients from seeing all the locally created printers in the Printers folder or when selecting a printer from within an application.
It is possible to assign a specific printer or printers to an individual user or to groups of users by simply modifying the permissions to the printer or printers.

To achieve this fuctionality, you will first need to install the updated version of Localspl.dll on the Terminal Server.

To assign a printer to a Terminal Server client, follow these steps:
