    Citrix Printing

    Hi,

    We use MetaFrame XP and are trying to set it up so that when users login in a certain room the appropriate printer is shown, tried using auto creation but cant seem to get it to work.

    Any ideas?

    We solve this problem by nameing the clients per IT suite eg IT1-*
    A login script then creates the correct printer for each client.

    Re: Citrix Printing

    All our rooms are set out like this and we have a script that runs for the classroom fat clients (RMG1-PC01 = G1 Printer)

    How can this be achieved with citrix?

    You have to use a different variable to determine the citrix clients. I think its "clientname" rather than "computername" . Ric_ will fill you in he has it incorporated into his logon script.

    indeed, while
    Code:
    echo %computername%
    gives the computername
    Code:
    echo %clientname%
    gives the clientname

    Re: Citrix Printing

    at the start of your script, simply set the computername to be the same as the clientname. It works wonderfully and is a lot better than the Citrix method (which I have never made work).

    Re: Citrix Printing

    Our machine name and citrix client names are the same, the current printer script maps by machine location, how can we get this to work in citrix?

    Re: Citrix Printing

    What has been said above should work for you as the other two use that method. Are you sure you are querying "clientname" ?
