How to map a locally connected PCL/PS-based printer to a Citrix or RDP session?


The CUPS driver does not support all printer functions such as duplex, color profiles, etc. 


  1. Open local IGEL Setup or UMS configuration or profile.
  2. Go to Devices > Printer > CUPS > Printers.
  3. Create a new printer and define a Printer Name.
  4. Select the Printer Port your printer is connected to.
  5. Set Manufacturer = Generic.
  6. Set Printer names = Raw Queue.
  7. Switch to the tab Mapping in sessions.
  8. Enable Map Printer in ICA Sessions or Map Printer in RDP Sessions.
  9. Enable the radio button Use Custom Windows Driver Name.
  10. Enter the exact name of the Windows driver installed on the server.
  11. Check if Sessions > Citrix > Citrix Global > Mapping > Printer > Client printer mapping or Sessions > RDP > RDP Global > Mapping > Printer > Enable Client Printer Mapping is enabled.
  12. Start the ICA or RDP session and install the printer driver with the redirected port named TS00x/ClientPort.
