hi list,

if I have 2003 terminal servers, and do not wish them to install v2 print
drivers, how do I get the 2003 printer servers to print to printers attached
to windows 2000 printer servers which have v2 drivers installed??

I tried to add create a mapping in the 2003 servers ntprint.inf which held the
v2 driver name but pointed to a v3 driver installed... unfortunately, this
seemed to end in tears and the job never appeared.... and the queue stuck... I
guess that the problem here is that I am driving from v3 driver at the
terminal server, creating the print job and then sending to a printer which
spools to the printer using a v2 driver for a printer with the same driver

ok, now, I must admit, I;m not altogether up to speed with the printing
process in term services and am currently churning through
www.printingsupport.com / Brians books /bernards books, but I can't see any
stuff about printing from v3 drivers to printers attached to print server with
v2 drivers... can this be done???

in fact, what exactly is the process, if one prints from a terminal server to
a network print server, why doesn't the print server just pass on the print

thanks in advance, brianos
