I have attached a USB printer to my Wyse device and can print to this locally via test print from the device. When I connect to my published desktop from the Wyse client it does not map the USB Printer and therfore I cant use it.
I have added the following to my xen.ini
The Citrix end is fine as I have tested from a PC and plugged the same printer in to the USB and this works fine.
On the global configuration on the Wyse device it states that printer is enabled.
Any suggestions please29. October 2011 at 13:01 #21285
Go to the local Printer config on the client and check the PrinternIdentification field. This should show the same name (case-sensitive) like the printer driver name on the server site.31. October 2011 at 14:21 #21296
Thanks for that , and it worked , the printer now maps. How would this work then when configuring lots of clients for a variety of local printers. I wouldnt have a static entry for one type of printer. I read somewhere you can specify a list of printers in a text file. How does that work?31. October 2011 at 15:15 #21299
There is printer mapping file you can use either on WTOS or Citrix side. That way you can map a simple name to a complicate printer driver driver name or multiple printers to one generic driver.

I am facing a similar issue. I can get this working by manually entering these details into the Wyse device but I want my xen.ini file to update the settings for me. I have tried the following….
Name=”HP LaserJet P2055dn PCL5e”
PrinterID=”HP LaserJet P2055dn PCL5e”
I have also tried this without the leading space and the backslashes and a few different combinations.
Also, do you have a link to somewhere that explains in a little more detail how to setup using multiple local printers. We have a number of users with different locally attached printers so the xen.ini file would need to cover all these printers. I read somewhere that you can point it to a text file with a list of printers but i am unsure how this is configured.

Check the name of the printer driver on your server, this should match your local USB connected printer as it is detected by the thin device. If these two match then it should just work.
