    I have configured a LPD printer in the WNOS.IN like this:

    Printer=LPD1 LocalName=”hp” Host=10.111.1.29 Queue=hp
    PrinterID=”HP LaserJet 4″ Enabled=yes
    [

    When I login to Citrix, the printer is not mapped, the ‘HP LaserJet 4’ driver is installed on the server. What else do I have to configure or install on Windows or Presentation Server?

    Hi PeGe,

    try this:
    Printer=LPT1 Name=”HP” PrinterID=”HP Laserjet 4″ Enabled=yes
    I know this is not what you are looking for but this is just a try to see if the printer will be created. If not, there is an issue with the PrinterID, I assume.

    Cheers

    Hi ConfGen,

    When I try: Printer=LPT1 Name=”HP” PrinterID=”HP Laserjet 4″ Enabled=yes the printer is not created.

    So you think there is an issue with the PrinterID ?

    Peter.

    Yes, pretty sure about that.
    You have installed the printer once on the server? Is it still there? Open the Properties then and check the driver name. This has to be the same as the PrinterID.

    Hi CG,

    Checked the driver name in the registry. It is “HP LaserJet 4” just the same as the PrinterID, but still not working.
    Even installed the printer again on the server as a local LPT1 printer. When I logon I see the on the server created printer (LPT1) but the locally mapped printer on the Wyse V10 (LPD1) is not autocreated.

    Grt,
    Peter.

    OK, so LPT mapping works now? LPD is still not working, correct?

    No, LPT mapping doesn’t work.
    But it’s a very strange problem. When I logon to the Citrix server with RDP and manually try to add a printer, I see that there is a client port available named: “CLIENT:2:HP LASERJET 4 (client printer port)â€￾ when I manually add this printer I can print without any problem from the Wyse.
    So the client port is mapped but the printer is not autocreated. I checked the driver name (Hp LaserJet 4) which is the same as the PrinterID on the Wyse.

    I have just done a quick test. I have used a V10L with your FW and this wnos.ini parameter

    Printer=LPD1 LocalName=”hplpd” Host=172.16.60.10 Queue=ip_172.16.60.10 PrinterID=”hp laserjet 4″ Enabled=yes

    This worked perfectly in my lab

    Cheers

    Problem finally solved !! It was a Citrix policy which caused the problem:

    When enforcing “UPD onlyâ€￾ non win32 ica clients cannot auto create print queues.

    That’s true. UPD is only Win32. But if you still want to use UPD for the other client you can define an exception to the policy, eg. based on the names (all clientnames starting with WT* or WBT*)
