Do not allow client printer redirection

This policy setting allows you to specify whether to prevent the mapping of client printers in Remote Desktop Services sessions. You can use this policy setting to prevent users from redirecting print jobs from the remote computer to a printer attached to their local (client) computer. By default Remote Desktop Services allows this client printer mapping. If you enable this policy setting users cannot redirect print jobs from the remote computer to a local client printer in Remote Desktop Services sessions. If you disable this policy setting users can redirect print jobs with client printer mapping. If you do not configure this policy setting client printer mapping is not specified at the Group Policy level.
