When printing in ICA and RDP sessions, the print data are normally prepared for the printer model by the Windows printer driver and are passed unchanged from the device to the printer. An exception is made when using the Windows driver in ICA sessions, Manufacturer is set to "Generic" and Model is set to "Generic PostScript." In this case, the print data are prepared on the device with the help of the printer driver defined above under Printer for the printer model. This requires device resources.
