I have some HP T5135's and HP T5145's.  These thin clients run HP's HP Thin Connect OS.  I need to connect a local printer to one or more of them.  What is my easiest possible solution? Has anyone got local printing working on these?  This thread scares me a bit:

Do you realy need to hang them off of a work station, it cannot be a network connected printer?

Yes.  Any operator could be working on any of those stations at any given time.  Each station must only be able to use 1 printer.

you can install n stations & n printers on a network with 2 n  network ports.
You would need some tooling (possibly group policies in windows) to know which default printer should be connected as default printer with which station.
Using this setup you would be able to redirect to a different printer when a printer gets out of order.

I had no idea I was able to direct which printer when to which thin client.  Are there any tutorials on how to do this?

Obviously you can expand on that job by comparing computers & tables.

or this article:

In your case you might need to find out the workstation a session is connected with.
Now i am a VMS & Linux systems manager so i don't exactly known how to get that information on windows.
