NComputing RX-HDX Client Printer Redirection/Mapping and Printing from local Apps
This article is for RX-HDX administrators looking to integrate printing or file share options either through the Citrix session/Environment or locally with the RX-HDX device.
is a short list of facts regarding Citrix Client Printer Redirection/Mapping
(printing from Citrix sessions to local printers):
connected USB printers are supported (but some models can be problematic;
cheapest GDI printers should be avoided; more advanced printers
understanding the PCL and/or PostScript languages should work)
connected network printers (HP JetDirect) are supported (the same comment
as above applies)
- to be
tested/verified is whether locally connected LPD and SMB network printers
- to be
tested/verified is whether locally connected serial printers (connected
through USB-serial adapters) are supported
Universal Printer Driver is not supported; native Windows printer drivers
must be installed on all VDA machines where the users requiring local
printing will run their sessions
is not supported
from local applications:
from local applications (especially from locally running Firefox browser)
is supported, but probably limited to the few PPD drivers, which are
present in the RX-HDX firmware by default; ability to add PPD drivers
needs to be confirmed/verified/ tested by users
printing should be possible to USB and HP HetDirect network printers
printing to LPD, SMB, and serial printers needs to be tested/verified/ tested by users
Regarding network scanners and network
shares: RX-HDX is a thin-client device, not a file server, so it does not allow
creating any network shares. Mounting network shares from a remote file servers
is possible though. If the network scanners can save the scanned pages into a
CIFS network share, then this share can be mounted to RX-HDX on boot and the
contents will be accessible by local applications, like the Firefox browser. This can be configured either through No Touch Center or at the device under Drives/Printers.
