#126046 - 2004-09-02 11:09 AM Windows 2003 - Thin Clients

I'm trying to make a script to choose default printer for a Windows CE thin client on an active directory. But whenever I try to get any information about the client, the values are from the server (WKSTA returns server name, IPADDRESSx returns server IP). Any ideas?

If the client has a locally mapped printer, you will want to insure they have it mapped as LPT1. Once you insure that, then they should be able to login to a TSE and print through.. That is, if you have the appropriate drivers installed on the TSE.

There is a FAQ on this.
