Citrix Xps Universal Printer Drivers For Mac Average ratng: 4,6/5 5731 votes

Only one driver is released by Nvidia and it includes support for all of their modern GPUs. Hp drivers for mac.


I have removed all non-Microsoft drivers. I have the policy set to only use Citrix Universal Printer Driver. The only drivers installed on the XenApp server are the default drivers. Still, I have this issue. I have recently set the registry key to use the XPS driver by default in an attempt to fix this problem. I have eliminated the vast majority of my printing issues by using only the Citrix Universal Printer driver for autocreated printers and using the Microsoft LaserJet 5 driver for session printers.

In this article (part two) I’d like to focus on the Citrix printing pathways, how they differ and when one or the other will, or can be used. I’ll also highlight the universal print driver, server and printer together with a whole bunch of CTX defaults, best practices including some of the most common troubleshooting tools and a BIG list of takeaways. However, knowing what happens after a user hits print and how traffic flows throughout our infrastructure is probably the best place to start. I have also included a BIG list of takeaways, which is available as a separate download as well. If you prefer to read the cheat sheet as a whole, combining both parts, download the.PDF document on the right. Vpn proxy free download. If you are only interested in my list of takeaways, tips, tricks and best practices (available as a separate download as well) I suggest you scroll right down.

The Citrix Printing Pathways A printing pathway basically defines how print traffic can or will be routed throughout our environment. It also tells us where a job gets processed, spooled and so on. Depending on the types of endpoints we use, the way we provision printers, including the physical setup of our XenApp and/or Print servers we can partly influence how print traffic will be routed, and use it to our advantage. Before we have a look at both pathways, client and network, I’d like to start with a setup referred to as server local printers. Server local printers Server local printers is nothing more then attaching a physical printer directly to a XenApp server. Probably a set up you won’t come across that often, but potentially useful nonetheless. From a client perspective, when a document is printed, spooling will take place locally (as mentioned in part one) on the XenApp server, leveraging local resources, before sending the output to the actual physical print device.

The Citrix Universal Printer is an auto-created printer object that uses the Citrix Universal Print Driver and is not tied to any specific printer defined on the client. Once implemented, it is available in all sessions that use the 32-bit Windows client. Citrix has the ability to map local printers using a policy which they call Auto Printer Creation and they have built their own universal print driver that works on (most) printers for basic. All versions of the HP Universal Print Driver pass the Citrix Ready tests, but not all versions are submitted to Citrix for listing on the Citrix Ready web page. The HP UPD 5.5 PCL 5, PCL 6, and PS (64-bit) are listed as Citrix Ready.

If you prefer to read part one first click The client-printing pathway Although you have a few options with regards to configuring the client-printing pathway (we’ll get to that in a minute) the best way to explain and illustrate how it work is by assuming that a locally attached printer has been configured. By default there is no print server involved. The ‘client’ part refers to print traffic generated on the Citrix (XenApp) server being redirected back to the client device from where it will be forwarded to the actual physical print device. This is what happens A user will have a session on the Citrix (XenApp) server, as soon as he or she clicks print the application print output will be spooled / rendered on the Citrix server (turning it into an actual print job) before sending it back (over ICA) to the client from where it will be forwarded to the physically attached print device. From a client / user perspective this means that spooling takes place locally, again leveraging local resources. Here it is important to note that the client device as well as the Citrix (XenApp) server will both have the Citrix Receiver / ICA protocol installed. When the spooled print job is send back from the Citrix (XenApp) server to the client device this is done using, or over, the ICA protocol / channels, and thus the data send can be controlled, meaning compressed, limited etc. Which is very useful, especially when the client device and the XenApp server are physically separated from each other.

See image above. As a side note, most thin client devices are based on Linux, they will not be able to locally handle and process the earlier mentioned print jobs. As a result of this, the client-printing pathway will only work with Windows based (fat) client devices. Note When a locally attached printer is configured, and again, this will only work on a Windows (fat) client device, the client-printing pathway will be enforced. Meaning that the application print output / the print job will always be send back to the client device. Stay tuned because we have a few more ‘use cases’ to discuss when it comes to the client-printing pathway.
