Configuring ThinPrint
No ThinPrint-specific configuration is available on the thin clients. Thus to be able to use
ThinPrint, users must first set up their printers according to the user documentation, and
then configure ThinPrint on the thin client (by clicking on the desktop background,
selecting System Setup from the menu to open the Network Setup dialog box, and then
clicking Printer to open and use the printer configurations).
Use the following guidelines:
•Use the Printer Identification field to enter a printer class (you can change the printer
name as needed).
Printer IDs are assigned (depending on the physical port) as follows:
•COM1 = 1
•COM2 = 2
LPT1 = 3 (USB printers are detected automatically on LPT1)
•LPT2 = 4
LPD0 = 5 (The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer
Identification as class)
LPD1 = 6 (The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer
Identification as class)
LPD2 = 7 (The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer
Identification as class)
LPD3 = 8 (The LPD Queue name is transmitted as the printer name; the Printer
Identification as class)
SMB1 = 9 (In the form \\host\printershare)
•SMB2 = 10
•SMB3 = 11
•SMB4 = 12
To install the relevant ThinPrint product on the server use the following guidelines:
Printer Object(s) Created Manually by the Administrator - After you install .print
Engine, create a printer object on the server to use the native driver and ThinPort as a
printer port. You can use any protocol (TCP, RDP, or ICA) because Wyse ThinOS has
.print clients for all of the protocols. The printer object needs to observe ThinPrint
naming conventions (for example, HPLJ5#_:2, in which case print jobs will be sent to
the local printer that has ID number .2) by referring to .print client port ID. If no ID
number is present, the .print client sends the print job to the printer set as current.
Printer Object(s) Created Automatically by ThinPrint AutoConnect - When using
ThinPrint AutoConnect, the thin client identifies with the thin client ID number 84 (and
thus is recognized as a thin client without a local spooler). You can also set up a
template on the server that uses a native driver (for example, HPLJ5) and ThinPort,
and then name this template as you want in the form _#AnyName. You can then make
sure that the rules (on ThinPrint Autoconnect [1]) have been set to assign the desired
local printers to use this server template. The assigned printer will then be shown in the
user session using the HPLJ5 driver and ThinPort; it will be named automatically
according to ThinPrint naming convention with the printer name from the client side
included. Alternatively, you can also define a template name according to the client
printer name (replace .AnyName. with printer name 4. and 5. above [for example, _#HP
Laserjet 5]) so that the local printer object .HP Laserjet 5. will be mapped to this
template without any rules defined on the ThinPrint Autoconnect.
