Not sure if it's relevant in your case, but we had problems mapping
shared network printers when they were UNC'ed from the client OS - had
to map a local LPT port to the printer.  Once we did that all was OK.

Subject: [THIN] Infrequent but annoying printer mapping problem.

Environment is NT4 TSE / MetaFrame SP2.

Occasionally, I'll have a printer fail to map when a user logs in.  The
only resolution that I have seen to this is to have the user logout of
Citrix, remove their print driver, and re-add it, then have them log
back in.  I've compared the driver files and registry entries for the
printer before and after, and found no differences... Yet suddenly they
are back in business.

I'm pretty sure the only printers this happens with are shared network

Anyone have any idea what else I might look at to fix this without
deleting/re-adding their printer and driver?
