How can I enable Internet Printing under Microsoft IIS?

The Internet Printing feature isn’t a default component of IIS. To enable it, you must install it as follows:

1. Start the Add or Remove Programs Control Panel applet (Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs).
2. Double-click the Add/Remove Windows Components button.
3. Select Application Server and click Details.
4. Select Internet Information Services (IIS) and click Details.
5. Ensure that the “Internet Printing” check box is selected.
6. Click OK to close all dialog boxes.

After you’ve installed the Internet Printing feature, users can use the http:///printers URL to view and connect to the printers on the node. Users with the correct access permissions can also control certain printing actions.

REG DELETE HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionWindowsUpdateIUControl /V Identserver /F

2. Close the CMD.EXE window.

When I connect a client to a Windows Server 2000 or later Terminal Services server, how can I tell the client to connect via a nonstandard port?

Typically, when you connect to a Windows-based terminal server, you connect to port 3389. However, if someone has changed the listening port on the terminal server (by changing the value of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlTerminal ServerWinStationsRDP-TcpPortNumber subkey), you need to tell the client to connect to the new port. To do so, add a colon and the new port number after the server name, as this example shows:

TServer:3389
