Is it possible to use USB Printers with USB Redirection disabled on the IGEL Thin Clients? ITs works with our windows thin clients, but i’ve noticed since we’ve been migrating over to igel, the few people that do have usb printers don’t get recognized
Yes, and tbh it’s the prefered way (even if they are exceptions):
Printer is configured locally (Devices,Printer,CUPS,Printers)
Mapped to Citrix (or Vmware, RDS)
Ok thanks. We use vmware and i’ve been trying what your suggesting but not having much luck. Any documentation or tips?
Well, this thread is covering it on Citrix but it’s pretty much the same on Vmware
Don’t forget to hace the driver definition name set1 1:1, between your local / remote printer.
Ok thanks! I’ll give it a shot
What does this mean exactly: Don’t forget to hace the driver definition name set1 1:1, between your local / remote printer.
The driver definition name (custom windows driver name) in your cups printer section must match case sensitive your driver name on Terminalserver
I’m still having no luck with this. 😞
