Client LPT port redirection

This setting allows or prevents access to LPT ports on the user device.

By default, LPT port redirection is prohibited.

LPT ports are used only by legacy applications that send print jobs to the LPT ports and not to the print objects on the user device. Most applications today can send print jobs to printer objects. This policy setting is necessary only for servers that host legacy applications that print to LPT ports.
