HIi Experts,

I need to organise location based printing in Citrix through Group policy preferences.

Can I find the subnet of a local computer that I can use as an environment variable in Group policy preferences?

I have Windows 2003 servers with Xen App 4.5.
Cheers

Hmm I'm not sure this is easily do-able within 4.5.

This seems to come close:

Out of interest, why not just use the Citrix Universal Print driver? Or, if you need more features and have HP printers, the HP Universal Printer Driver?

Why don't you use Citrix's session printer policy and assign it to users based on the client IP address? Once you have created the policy, right click on it to apply based on the client ip address.

To know how to create the policy, watch this video:

Thanks for the solution.

I learnt it can be done both ways through citrix as basraj suggested and it can be done by GP preferences as well, in there too you can choose to have clients IP address when creating a Printing Policy.
