That may be the problem, Steve.  I don't believe we are 'assigning'
them.  At least we have not configured session printers in any policies.

        That is no problem, turning off Citrix remote client printing
does not disallow them from printing to LAN printers that are mapped the
conventional way in their PS sessions....How are you assign the LAN
network printers now?

        Sorry, Joe and list.  I forgot to mention how I was applying the
policy.  The particular policy that I mentioned is applied to Access
Control -> Filter based on Access Control -> Apply to connections made
through MetaFrame Secure Access Manager (version 4.0 or later).

         

        Joe, I want to allow users coming in through our CAG to have the
ability to print to Network Printers but NOT local client printers.
e.g. we don't want someone who is connecting from home to print an
insurance policy or customer information on their home printers, but
there is no reason why, from home, they cannot print to one of our
office printers.

         

        I hope this helps.

         

        Thank you,

                How are you applying this policy?

                 

                In this case,  I would setup a minimum of two
policies... One for internal and one for external and apply those
policies based on IP subnet ranges or if you're using smart access use
that as your filter.

                Being an Insurance company, we have a policy that does
not allow printing to local printers as the information may be
confidential.  We have been able to implement this with a policy in our
CMC.  We only block this when users are coming through the CAG, no need
to block this behavior when people are connected to the network.

                Our intent was never to block users from printing to
network printers.  We have just learned that in fact, we are.
Apparently, the policy that we created is blocking all printing - local
and network.  

                Question:  Is there a way to block the creation and/or
mapping of local printers (someone's printer at home or remote office)
but allow users to print to network printers (printers on our network
and published in AD) and/or add them to their Citrix profile as needed?

                Current policy details: 

                *       Client Devices -> Resources -> Ports -> turn off
LPT ports -- Enabled 
                *       Printing -> Client Printers -> Auto Creation --
Enabled and set to Do not auto-create client printers 
                *       Printing -> Client Printers -> Turn off client
printer mapping -- Enabled 

                 

                I appreciate any help that you have to offer.  

                Thank you,
