Disable printer redirection on Windows Server 2008.

Recently I received a lot of errors in my Windows Event log for the event 1111. This happened because Our Company used to use RDP to manage our Application servers.

After do some research, I found the most suitable solution from

Problem description:
You may notice that when RDP’ing into the Print Server, you are having print drivers being installed that were installed on the client (workstation or laptop).
This could be due to the RDP (RDS/TS) printer redirection being enabled.

Note:  In Windows Server 2003, if you were running as a Print Server, it was easy to disable print redirection by going to “Administrative Tools > Terminal Services”.
Since Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2, have roles, the MMC to disable Remote Desktop (Terminal Services) print redirection is not installed by default.  And you don’t want to enable the role to disable TS printer redirection. 

GPO or GPEdit.msc (Local policy)
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Printer Redirection > Do not allow client printer redirection
Via the registry key:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services
fDisableCpm set to 1

Another alternative is to install the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 on your Windows 7 SP1 client.
Administrative Tools > Terminal Services > Terminal Services Configuration
Right click on RDP-TCP
Click on Properties
Under "Client Settings" tab
Under "Redirection - Disable the following"
Check the "Windows Printer"

How to install and configure smtp server on Windows 2008 R2

I have recently configure my Windows 2008 R2 as smtp server. As one of Application that is used by my company is required mail server that allow send without authentication, i cannot use gmail or any other public smtp server. I have tried using stunnel to map the authentication, but for some reason, it did't work for some program function of my application. So i decided to install own smtp server.

Refer to below link on how to setup mail server in Windows 2008 R2:

Sending email through SMTP gmail (port 25) without SSL authentication

If you have domain in google app and using your domain gmail, You can connect to the Google Apps mail servers using SMTP or SSL. If you connect using SMTP, you can only send mail to Gmail or Google Apps users; if you connect using SSL, you can send mail to anyone.

That’s a problem, as Google Apps email accounts use on port 465 (for SSL) or 587 (for TLS). Unencrypted sending is not possible through this SMTP server.

The answer is to replace the settings with:

  • server:
  • port: 25

I've try it using tools  SendSMTP. SendSMTP can send SMTP email via command-line instructions or interactively. This useful utility can be used to send email alerts, programmatically send files, whatever you like.

Basic Macro in Microsoft Excel 2012

In this beautifull night, i was assigned to edit the excel for BCP checklist for my company. I have idea to use macro to navigate to all the checklist in an excel workbook. This below tutorial, i am creating a simple macro in Excel 2012. I want to have buttons that will navigate me through all the sheets in excel.

1. Enable developer tab
  • On the right side of the ribbon, click Action pop-up menu, and then click Ribbon Preferences.
  • Under Customize, select the Developer check box.
2. On the Developer tab, under Visual Basic, click Editor.
  • Insert a module, in the Visual Basic Editor, on the Insert menu, click Module.
  • In the code window of the module, type or paste the macro code below.
  • When you are finished, on the Excel menu, click Close and Return to Microsoft Excel.

Sample macro code:

Sub getForm()

Btn = ActiveSheet.Buttons(Application.Caller).Caption

Select Case Btn
' First section selects from the checklists
    Case "SWIFT Checklist"
        Sheets("SWIFT Checklist").Select
    Case "Infra Checklist"
        Sheets("Infra Checklist").Select
'Last section selects nav sheet
    Case "To Main Page"
        Sheets("BCP Main").Select
End Select

End Sub

Sub stands for Subroutine, which you can define for now as "macro". Running the getForm macro runs any code that is between Sub getForm() and End Sub.

3. Create 3 worksheets:
  • SWIFT Checklist
  • Infra Checklist
  • BCP main
4. In BCP main worksheets, navigate Developer ribbon
