Event ID 1123 — Terminal Services Printer Redirection
Updated: January 5, 2012
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
Terminal Services provides printer redirection, which routes printing jobs from a server to a printer that is attached to a client computer or to a shared printer that is available to the client computer. When a user establishes a remote session with a terminal server, the redirected printer will be available to applications running in the remote session.
By default, a Windows Server 2008 terminal server first tries to use the Terminal Services Easy Print driver. If the client computer does not support this driver, the terminal server looks for a matching printer driver installed on the terminal server. You can either install a matching printer driver on the terminal server, or you can create a custom printer mapping file.

|Message:||The Print Spooler failed to add the printer %1, port %2 because of a port error. The Print Spooler will not try again to add the printer.|
Disconnect and reconnect the Terminal Services session
To try to resolve this issue, the user should disconnect the Terminal Services session, and then reconnect.
To verify that printer redirection is working properly, establish a remote session with the terminal server and check that the redirected printer is available and is functioning as expected.
