Central print server with ThinPrint Engine (scenario 1)

For all the preparations you need to make on a central print server (on which a Thin­Print Engine is installed) as well as on the terminal servers and XenDesktop tem­plates (see Illus.), refer to ThinPrint installation and configuration.

Terminal server with ThinPrint Engine (scenario 2)

On the terminal server or remote desktop, you can make an entry in the AutoConnect table so that the Mac printer will be mapped into the terminal session – without creating a template.

  • When configuring AutoConnect, enter an additional line into Dynamic Printer Matrix, in order to map printers without templates, e. g.:

TPPS!ThinPort:

Dynamic Printer Matrix: additional lines for the creation of the Mac printers, first line for the TCP/IP type, second line for ICA.(example)

Dynamic Printer Matrix: additional lines for the creation of the Mac printers, first line for the TCP/IP type, second line for ICA.(example)

Legend:

Column x applies to Mac OS X clients, and others
Column I applies only for the ICA protocol
Column R applies only for the RDP protocol
Column T applies only for the TCP/IP protocol
TPPS the PostScript driver TP Output Gateway PS
! separator
ThinPort: name of the ThinPrint Port with which the session printers are to be connected (one line is needed per ThinPrint Port). For TCP/IP, the print protocol of the port must be set as TCP/IP (sockets), and for ICA or RDP as Virtual Channel Protocol (ICA or RDP).

The PostScript driver TP Output Gateway PS (see TPPS in the Target column of Illus.) enables AutoConnect to transfer the driver properties from the Mac to the session printers.
