JSI Tip 5611. Error 'Destination path not found' when a Terminal Services client prints to a local port that is redirected to a file?

When a Terminal Services client tries to print to a custom local port that is redirected to a file, they receive:

Destination path not found.

Since the print spooler runs in the System account context, it has no access to the network.

To workaround this feature, use FILE:    Print to File as the port, which causes the print processing to occur on the client computer.
