Proximity printing with Citrix Presentation Server 4.5
Posted on 2009-02-11
I have two floors within my company building. Each floor has a different IP range.
I installed one printer on each floor for my thin client users to access. I only want users on the ground floor to access the printer which is on their floor and users on the 1st floor to access theirs.
Each of my clients are thin clients by the way, running Windows CE using the web interface on Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 to access applications.
OK, my print server is on a different server to the Presentation Server but in the same domain. I imported both printers from this server onto my Presentation Server. The presentation server could see these printers along with their drivers. I then set a policy with so that the printer on the ground floor could only be seen by users in a particular IP range and did the same for the 1st floor. Unfortunately none of my users can see anything.
I then cleared all my policies apart from one, which was so that users on the ground floor could see their printer, but they still cannot. I have nothing else within the policy configured apart from the session printer policy.
I have not configured anything with AD which may conflict.
Has anybody got any ideas?
