    Good Morning,

    Please, do you have any documentation that explains how to install laser printers from the USB port on the Dell Wyze 3040?

    I searched for several sites on the internet and found practically nothing about it.

    My printer is an HP Laserjet 1102W

    thank you

    Is this ThinOS 8 or 9?

    Assuming WTOS 8, You don’t install any drivers on the 3040. What happens when you plug in the printer to your 3040 (while not connected to anything, Citrix, VMWare, RDS, etc.) and navigate in ThinOS to system settings >> peripherals >> print tab?  Does it detect the printer and can you do a test print?

    Step 1 is getting the printer recognized locally on the 3040.

    Step 2 is getting it recognized in your remote session.

    can you provide more information around how you’re connecting, firmware version, etc?

    Good afternoon,

    Thanks for the feedback.
    Thin client connects to a windows server 2019 server that is configured as a domain controller. Access works perfectly.

    The problem is that I have some thinclients that I need to install this printer on the USB port

    This is my question: how to make the windows server know that the user’s thinclient charles.bronson has a printer connected to the USB port?

    OK, here are the needed steps.
    Install the printer driver on the Windows server. Check in the printer details what the exact Printer Driver name is. You can see that in the Printer Properties – Advanced (or similar).
    Now go to the Thin Client and open the Printer Configuration.
    You should already see your locally attached printer here.
    Make sure the “Printer Identification” reflect the exact Printer Driver Name from the server.
    Printername is not important. This is what the user will see in the session later.
    Also make sure that the printer is activated in this menu.

    good morning thanks for the return if my understanding is correct i don’t need an iis server with a wnos.ini file to point this printer?

    I would recommend using a wnos.ini. However, no, you do not need it. Everything can be configured locally.
