Disable settings of redirected printers to be default on RDP

We're setting up a RDS server and notice that redirected printers are set to be the default on RDP if they're set to be the default on the local machines. We cannot disable printer redirection so it's not a solution. Setting a default printer from GPO is also not a solution since almost everyone has a different default printer. Is there a way to allow users to take their local printers to the RDP session without messing up the previously set default printer on the RDS?

Example for the issue:

  1. On the user computer the local default printer is Printer_A

  2. RDS default printer has been set to Printer_B in the last connection of the user

  3. User connects to RDS now and the RDS default printer for their session changes to Printer_A

Is there a way to allow the redirection of Printer_A without changing the RDS default printer to Printer_A?

Hello,

Thank you for your question.

I would like to suggest you to check below Troubleshooting steps.

  1. In Windows 10 , Please make sure IIS is Uninstalled completely , you can verify from from Program and Features ->Turn on Windows features on or off

  2. In Windows Server , Open Server Manager - > Click on Manage -> Remove Roles and Features- > Features- > Untick IIS hostable core.

  3. Check where 443 port is being used on your server.

  4. Type netstat -aon | findstr '[port_number]'. Replace the [port_number] with the actual port number that you want to check and hit enter.

  5. If the port is being used by any application, then that application's detail will be shown. The number, which is shown at the last column of the list, is the PID (process ID) of that application. Make note of this.

  6. Type tasklist | findstr '[PID]'. Replace the [PID] with the number from the above step and hit enter.

  7. You'll be shown the application name that is using your port number.

Hope this helps,
