Printer tray redirection
Posted on 2014-04-29
We're having the problem, that we need to redirect the paper-tray of some printers.
The reason is, that most of the printers are Brother, which are using the following numbering:
Multifunctional-Tray - Tray1 - Tray2
Now we need to buy other printers, which are usually using the following numbering:
Tray1 (MF) - Tray2 - Tray3
If we now like to print a document with a predefined tray1 (which prints usually on a brother) on a HP, the printer is (correctly) asking for paper in the MF-Tray, which is number 1.
Is there a solution to redirect printer trays on specific printers? It would be nice to have a driver or software, which redirects the trays on the printserver (or as well on the Client).
Printserver is Windows 2008R2
Clients are Windows 8
Thank you for your hints.
