Only client auto-created printers will be sent through the ica session.  If
you create a lpr printer on the terminal server or import using the CMC, the
server will try to print directly to that cue.

So your three options are:
Third party solution (like thinprint) that will setup a printer server for
you and pipe those jobs back through the ica sessions.
Setup the print queues on the client PC and auto-create those printers.
Or setup a VPN between sites.  (which is what our office does)

Let's state the question in an other way,

If I specify a LPR printer on the terminal, will it be auto created?
If so how does it print, standard LPD/LPR (tcp 515) or will it print
via an ica channel (within the SSL stream)?

It is very important that it send the jobs through the SSL connection,
because I can't use standard LPD/LPR, while the Internet is between the

server and the client, and the printer has a private IP address.
(I know it's possible to PAT the LPR port...but that not secure, and
that's the whole point of the CSG implementation.)

OK! that's clear!
But how can I autocreate that network print, in the users session
(knowing that it is a Windows Based Terminal) ?

CSG does nothing to change printer autocreation. All it does is add a
layer
of security in your NFuse connection.  Printing remains the same.
