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.
