Windows Terminal Server 4.0/Citrix

By dgates_1 ·
I am trying to attach a printer to an LPT port on a terminal. I cannot get the printer to respond even though the driver appears to load properly. The printer thinks that a test page is being printed even though the print device does not respond. It is an HP 930C printer. I have tried the corporate driver to attempt to disable bidirectional communication thinking that this might be the problem but it still doesn't respond. The printer responds on a fat client but not the thin client.

Windows Terminal Server 4.0/Citrix

If you can let me know what kind of terminal you're using, I would be glad to run it by my Citrix guru, but I believe there is something special you have to do in regards to the Citrix client and the terminal to make use of the parallel port. Because a Citrix session only sends keyboard, mouse and video back and forth, supporting a printer requires a re-direct that is quite different from installing a printer under NT.

I know how to do it under W2K Terminal Services but if you'll re-post with the type of terminal, I'll see what I can find out about doing so in your environment.

Although the answer(s) don't deserve an unacceptable rating in my opinion, they still weren't used. I believe the problem involved some sort of permission problem. I am just coming aboard on this network and am one of three who have had their hands on its configuration. Adjustments were made about a week ago to the permissions and the printer responded just like it did before, without the installation of ThinPrint. Thanks for you input.

Open your user manager, select your client, select profile and enable client printers. That should do the trick.
