Map USB Printer to LPT1/2/3

  1. May 16, 2007 #1

    I am a new sysop for a company who uses Citrix Metaframe XP 1.0 and ICA remote connections.

    As far as I can tell, this version of Citrix does not support USB Printers when it auto-configures client printers for application use. However if the same printer is plugged into a LPT (Parallel) port, it pickes it up every time.

    I need to know how to redirect the ports so that Citrix thinks that the USB port is a LPT1/2/3 (Parallel) port.

    The Operating Systems we use are WIN 2000 and XP.

    *Already tried the DOS trick of 'NET USE LPT1: \\COMPUTER\PRINTER /PERSISTANT:YES'

    That works for DOS printing but Citrix will still not register the printer as valid.

    Any Help is greatly appreciated.
