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.
- Make sure that the printer completely spools the print data on the hard drive before sending. To do so, select General under Printer Properties.
- Select Start printing after last page is spooled.
- Disable the Advanced Printing Features. Click OK to confirm.
