LPR/LPD printing with Linux, Mac or Windows CE clients

595 views 0

Special case: LPD device

Linux, Mac OS and Windows CE clients are capable of forwarding print jobs to LPD devices. Either the ThinPrint Client Linux, Mac or WinCE is installed on a thin client or workstation and can then receive ThinPrint print jobs (via TCP/IP, ICA or RDP) and send them directly to internal or external print servers of network printers (via LPR/LPD).

ThinPrint Clients for Linux, Mac and Windows CE operating systems support LPR/LPD printing.

Preparations on the central print server

  • Create a new printer. For TCP/IP this must contain the Linux, Mac or Windows CE client’s address in its name. Assign a ThinPrint Port that uses TCP/IP, ICA, or RDP as print protocol (e. g., ThinPort:) and share the printer.
