[THIN] Re: Citrix printing

Personally I don't believe there is one "best practice solution" for
printing - there are just too may variables.

In my own case we have a fairly small farm (two production and one test
server) mostly users connect to a full desktop, most users are on the local
LAN and we have almost total control of what printers and drivers are used -
so for us Manufactures print drivers have been the best option (we have had
our share of issues).  We do make use of the UPD for as couple of remote
users where we had no input on what printer they had.

Other people have found the only way to get printing to work reliably is to
use a third party solution like thinprint. 

Really it all comes down to your particular mix of applications users and
print devices.

If you are having problems, or are not too sure which way to go with your
system send us a few more details and ask - there is bound to be someone who
has built a system for a similar environment who will be able to help you.

Hi,

Could anyone enlighten me as to the best practice solution for printing with
Citrix, i.e. should I use the UPD or should I install manufacturers print
drivers??

Thanks,
