Remove Logmein Printer - Help

Hi Everyone, 

 

I am using Log Me In Central, I do not want to attach any printers.

 

Each time I remote into a clients computer it attaches a Printer Via LogMeIn. How can I remove this?

Welcome to the Community and thanks for posting this question!

 

You can always disable Remote Printing when connecting to the host. Click Options on the black toolbar at the top of the remote session screen. Next, click the Remote Printing button. Uncheck the printers that you want to disconnect. This will disable remote printing for the duration of your session. You can also create a host preference package in Central to disable remote printing all together on the hosts in your account. Please take a look at the articles below for more information.

Re: Remove Logmein Printer - Help

Hello we have a few hundred pc's we connect to. Is there a global setting to not set our printer as their default printer? Or do we have to do each computer we connect to OPTIONS / Printer Settings / Remove checkmark when we connect. We know that it saves this option for the next time we connect but thats a lot of PC's to have to do this to. We do not want it disabled. There is about 4 of us that connect so all 4 of us have to remove this checkmark the 1st time we connect. Thanks.

Hi,

You can disable remote printing for all LMI client using a Host Preference Package.

In LMI Central, go to

Configuration/Host Prefences and select "Add Package" to add a Host Preference Package.

Give it a name

Category = Remote Control

De-select "Enable remote printing"

Save

Finish and Save All

Go Back to the Host Preferences

Next to the newly created package select "Click here to assign" and assign to LMI clients that you do not want to use with Remote Printing.

Hope this helps

Hi,

 

I want to disable remote printing all together.

 

I saw following link but second link is not working.

 

My situation is that due to intellectual property issue, I don't want remote users to print or copy any stuff from the remote computer they are working on. We are a Pro customer, can you please let me know how can we achieve disabling printing all together. I saw the option to uncheck the remote printing once the session is started but this is in the hands of the remote use to enable or disable printing. I don't want the option for remote use to print or enable disable printing. I hope I am clear with my question.

This does allow me to disable remote printing.  However, my goal is to just not have it enabled by default.  Inotherwords when I connect into a computer, my printer is not the default.  But if I chose to, I can go to options/remote printer and select it.

How would I accomplish this using LMI Central?

I also did not like anything about this feature, not everyone uses remote printing, but we have to be punished by big business politics.
For several times I find sheets and more sheets of content of our clients, consequently expense.
Logmein can certainly create an option to disable the remote print drive directly from the client.
If I am mistaken, please direct me to solve this situation in the most correct way.
We are not happy about it.

What a mess!!

When connecting to a terminal server it sets the remote printer as default for every session.

Remote printing should be disabled by default and let anyone willing to use it to activate the feature
