    We have a remote site that has a 1200LE logging into citrix ps3.0. I am running firmware 4.04.69i. When I put the printers in the terminal ldp 1 always stays but when I reboot any printer in LDPs 2-4 are removed. I tried to set the printer in the user.ini file but I can’t get the driver correct because of the spaces in the driver name. Is it posiable to assign printer in the user.ini? I don’t want to chang the wnos.ini because all of the remote sites use the same one.

    Hi,

    You will need to put all the printers in the .ini and set the quote marks around them:

    “My Printer Driver Name”

    I am assuming is works in the user.ini however I have not tested. Also hit the wyse web site and get the latest firmware as there a few fixes you should have,

    Cheers,

    When I put the driver name in quotes all I get is the ” and the first word. What is the latest firmware version avaliable. I have 1200 in the shop that has version 5.XX, but I only see version 4.4.079 at wyse for download.

    Hi Shep,

    The firmware for WTOS is no longer a free upgrade and the last free version on the wyse site is 4.4.x. Wyse will be releasing a 5.2.x version soon for those with support.

    Anyway, the printers still should work correctly. Can you post back with the contects of you wnos.ini file and the exact version of firmware on your test 1200LE. That would really help,

    Cheers,
    -TT

    I should also add, if you put the 4.4.079 code in your ftp server and set the line in your wlx.ini Autoload=2 this will upgrade your old devices but not let your newer ones downgrade from newer code.

    Here is my wnos.ini

    Autoload=1
    SignOn=1
    Privilege=high
    DeskColor=”0 0 0″
    Desktop=cmas.bmp
    ShutdownCounter=5
    Connect=ICA
    Host=192.168.0.7
    Description=”Marshall Office”
    Reconnect=No
    AutoConnect=yes
    Encryption=Basic
    FullScreen=Yes
    Colors=high color
    Lowband=yes
    Resolution=default
    Icon=default

    and here is my user.ini

    Resolution=1024×768
    Printer=LPD1 Host=192.168.3.200 Queue=Epson FX-80 PrinterID=”Epson FX-80″
    Printer=LPD2 Host=192.168.3.206 Queue=HP LaserJet 1320 PCL 5e PrinterID=”HP LaserJet 1320 PCL 5e”

    When the user logs into citrix the printers show up as Epson and HP with generic text drivers. The firmware is 4.4.069I
    Any help would be appreciated thanks

    Hi Shep,

    You have an error in the files, also make sure you have the drivers installed on your Citrix server and you update the firmware to the latest on the wyse.com site (yours is old)

    Here is my working example:

    wnos.ini


    #This will prevent the user being asked to log in to the local device
    signon=1
    PnliteServer=192.168.1.48:8080
    DomainList=MELAPPS2
    #This will upgrade to firmware if a newer version exists ing the ftp directory
    AutoLoad=1

    #Set correct language
    language=au

    #Set screen resolution
    Resolution=1024×768 Refresh=75

    #Set desktop colour
    DeskColor=”0 78 152″

    #Set wallpaper, don’t forget to put a bitmap in the directory under
    #the wnos directory and call it bitmap (ie wnosbitmaplogo.bmp)
    Desktop=Wyse.bmp

    #Start to lock down thin client
    #Priviledge=none

    #Set the time
    TimeZone=”GMT + 10:00″ ManualOverride=yes daylight=yes start=100507 end=030507 TimeZoneName=”AUS Eastern Standard Time” DayLightName=”AUS Eastern Daylight Time”
    TimeServer=ntp1.tpg.com.au;time.aeraq.com

    #Remote Shadow options
    VncPrompt=0

    #Custom Screen Saver
    ScreenSaver=1 SoftSaver=yes Type=3 Image=wyse.bmp

    #Setup a connection to an ica server and autoconnect to a published
    # desktop called “My Desktop”.

    connect=ica
    description=”Login to Network…”
    icon=ica.bmp
    domainname=MELAPPS2
    HttpBrowsing=1
    browserip=192.168.1.48:8080
    application=”My Desktop”
    Fullscreen=1
    autoconnect=0
    #LocalCopy=Yes

    #To save ICA connection settings to NVRAM remove # from line above, test connection first!

    User.ini (mine was called demo1.ini and I logged in as demo1)


    Privilege=high

    Printer=LPD1 Host=192.168.3.200 Queue=”Epson FX-80″ PrinterID=”Epson FX-80″
    Printer=LPD2 Host=192.168.3.206 Queue=”HP LaserJet 5N” PrinterID=”HP LaserJet 5N”

    I have the drivers installed on the citrix server. You say I have an error in my files can you tell me where exactly? I have the resolution set in the user file that is the only difference I can see. I did that because one user can not see her screen and complains constantly if it is not 800×600.
    thanks

    I added the quotes around the printer definition it didn’t make any difference still the printers do not show up. What was the change to the WNOS.ini I saw the pnagent server line what does that do?

    Hi Shep,

    Because you want to have a user.ini users will have to log in to the terminal. With a Citrix environment the easiest way to do this is with PN Agent. This way you can use your AD credentials to log to the terminal and Citrix to receive your apps and user.ini settings.

    The printer mapping worked 100% for me so I believe you have an issue with the Citrix set up for client printer mapping. I would go back to basics.

    – Does client printer mapping work on a PC?
    – Are you using the Citrix UPD (this will not work on Blazer)?
    – Is there any errors in the Citrix Server event log on print mapping failures?
    – Do you have the drivers loaded on the Citrix server for the Printer you are trying to map?
    – Add the printer to the wnos.ini, does this work?

    Unfortunatly printing is and will remain, one of the more difficult aspects of setting up Citrix,

    Cheers,
    -TT

    I finally got the printers to show up correctly. After double and triple checking my user INI file I found that I had missed a”. Just an FYI I used the config generator to make the printer definitions it did not put all the needed quotes in. Thanks for all your help.
