I am trying to find some sort of VERY detailed instructions on how to add/map a printer to a Wyse terminal (WTOS – V10L). This terminal has the latest firmware (7.0).
The printer I want to map is locally attached (USB/Parellel). I am using the ConfGen. How do I set it up, so if I launch a Citrix application or RDP into another computer, that the printer will be an available option to print to?
I guess I don’t understand the syntax / format of how to map a printer, map the correct drivers to use, ect. in a WTOS.
The syntax is pretty easy as ConfGen is doing this for you. It could look like this:
Printer=LPT1 Name=”My Printer” PrinterID=”HP LaserJet 4″ Enabled=yes
Two things you have take attention of:
1. The Port: If you attach the printer via USB and the device does not have parallel port build in, then use Printer=LPT1. If the client has a parallel port use Printer=LPT2. (always the next free parallel port)
2. PrinterID: This ID has to be exactly (!!!!) the same as the printer driver name on the server.
