_#ThinPrint Output Gateway printer template in the Printers folder

This printer is a template for auto-created client printers. In other words, when a user establishes a connection to the virtual desktop, a printer is created (mapped) for them in the session; this printer inherits specific settings (e. g. compression level, the transmission protocol, and the TP Output Gateway printer driver) from the template.
