    I have s10 wyse clients with citrix presentation server 4.0.
    I need the clients to be able to be able to print to their local printer -an Hp Laserjet p1005.

    I am trying to do this trough the client printers setup.

    Thanks for your time,

    If you are working on a S10 as I am, doing the following should get you printing.

    Install the printer drivers on the Citrix Server. Restart the print spooler and check to make sure Citrix is registering the drivers. Take note of the EXACT name of the driver for you printer. Most likely it will be something like – HP Laserjet P1005 series. You’ll need this information for later.

    On the terminal go into the printer setup. Ports Tab.

    If its a usb printer, select LPT1. (I’m sure this is the case)

    Printer Name: This doesn’t matter, put in whatever you want

    Printer Identification: First test to see if the terminal will print to the printer by checking the Enable the Printer Device box and leaving Generic / Text Only in this field. If the printer spools up and spits on some numbers, its good. If not, keep going.

    This is VERY important. This box must contain exactly what Citrix said the name of the printer driver is, Verbatim. If you want it to be printable from a Citrix session.

    Printer Class: I select PCL5 for my printers.

    Enable the Printer Device: Checked
    Enable LPD Service to the Printer: Unchecked

    These settings work for me, I hope you have the same luck.

    Hi,

    these simple HP LJ 1xxx series printers do not have their own BIOS. Therefore they are loading it normaly directly from the PC it is attached to.
    To get it run with WTOS you have to place these files on your FTP server where the wnos.ini file resides.
    You can get the files using my ConfGen. Go to the Printer tab and select that you are using a HP LJ 1xxx series printer.
    Then generate the wnos.ini (even if you haven’t configured anything) and ConfGen will create the wnos.ini file and a folder called printer_fw for you. Copy the folder with all included files to your wnos folder.

    Configure the printer now locally or via your wnos.ini and everything should work.

    Cheers

    I tried what you suggested and that didn’t work.
    If I test from the client, it says “printer offline”!
    From within the Ica session: It just vanishes in lala land.

    ConfGen,

    I really have no clue on how to setup the ftp and the confGen. Maybe you can direct me to a document where I can find some light.

    Thanks,

    Go to my website – Products and download the “First Steps” document.
    And/or go to Wyse.com and download the WTOS Admin Guide from the knowlegde base.

    ConfGen,

    I have setup the Ftp,
    I created with ConfGen the wnos and the printer_fw folders and placed them in the ftp site onto which I am able to log just fine, but I still cannot print.

    Did I buy the wrong printer or I am missing something in my config?

    I noticed in the printer tab on the client it list in the ports:
    Com1; Com2; Lpt (On Board); Lpt (Usb).

    When I try a test print I get
    w/ Lpt (On Board): “Printer offline”
    W/Lpt (Usb): “Ascii Printing Done. Check print-out. Some Printers may not print ascii data. Enable the printer and test print from host”

    The printer is online and when i print from the citrix session it just vanishes.
