Description
Client printer properties are the settings that control the configuration of printers installed on the client system. These settings are configured locally on the client’s desktop. Some of the more common settings are propagated to the auto-created client printer in the user’s session.
Test methodology
An HP printer was attached to the client device using a parallel cable, USB, cable or TCP/IP port. The printer was installed on the client system and drivers for the printers were downloaded from the HP Driver Support website.
Setting changes were made to the HP printer installed locally on the client system, and then the client system connected to the Citrix XenApp server farm. The settings were propagated and the client was able to print successfully.
Description
Auto-creation of client printers requires drivers for client printers to be available on servers running Citrix XenApp Server. When you use universal printing you do not need to install native printer drivers in your server farm. Rather, the client printers are auto-created using Citrix Universal printing.
Test methodology
An HP printer was attached to the client system using a parallel cable, USB cable or TCP/IP port. The printer was installed on the client system. Because printer drivers are not needed to test the Universal printer, only HP printers are tested with this feature.
The client system connected to the XenApp server farm, which verified that the client’s locally attached HP printers were available in the user’s session and that the client could print successfully to the client’s locally attached HP printers.
