How do you handle local USB printers where users should be able to print from a RDP session when they are at home? USB redirection? Local CUPS? Drivers? …
Yes, I managed it at a customer with CUPS printing. Although that was Citrix, I think the principle is the same. Of course you must have the redirected printer settings configured well If yes, the local printer is shown in the session.
Point 10, where do I find the exact name of the driver?
I used a default HP driver. Took one of the most common used Laserjet drivers and it worked although it was not exactly the same printer type 😇
I know there are websites where u can find a lot about CUPS drivers etc.
Just to Henks perfect answer: Here is a thread that might help, even if Citrix related:
Ok, maybe we will not support (all) local printers. 😉
When I use an universal driver, eg. ‘HP Universal Printing PCL 6’, is there a way to tell the driver which features, like color, duplex, …, the printer supports?
From what I recall, yes, on the Terminalserver/Printer side.
It’s all greyed out… :thinking_face:
Cannot check atm (because of vacation), hope that someone can reproduce it.
Yes, happy holidays! 🙂
