Hello, I’m VERY new to the thin client world and am having a heck of a time figuring out how to setup printing for the thin clients… here’s the scenario.
I have 6 WYSE 3125 terminals (running CE 5) that will be deployed for a checkin system. I am able to use RDP to login to the Remote Desktop server just fine. I have attached a USB touchscreen monitor and it works just fine. I cannot get USB printing to work on the local thin client at all. Here’s what I have done.
*searched many forums extensively.
*on the thin client i:
-went into “Client Printers”
-added a new printer
-did a user defined printer (it’s a Zebra LP 2844-Z Label printer)
-made sure i named it just like the driver (on a Windows 2008 RD2 machine)
-went into the network properties on the thin client and gave it an IP of 10.0.1.31
So my question is this… how should I set this up on the server so that I’m able to print from the thin client while in an RDP session? Everytime I try to add a new port using the IP address, I try printing a test page and nothing happens.
Thanks so much. This would GREATLY help me out if somebody could help me out on this.
