Manually Add Local Client Printer - Citrix Workspace and Citrix XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR

Ian Dale1709161148


In the standard windows RDP client a user can specify whether they want local printers redirected to the remote RDP session or not. Does the Citrix Workspace client have any similar ability to allow the end user to selectively/manually add a locally redirected printer?


The reason I am asking is that by default most users do not need their local printers from their local PC redirected. However sometimes when they are are at home they would like to be able to access their local printer. Is their any option or setting that can be enabled at the client end to allow local printer redirection selectively?

Hi Ian, 

Not the workspace app, the host / Site configuration however has.


ICA Client Printer Autocreation is by default on. Further detailed printer autocreation or redirection of network printers configuration is done by an Administrator. In above scenario an administrator could apply printing policies based on ex. ip addresses,ranges, client names etc. to allow or deny the autocreation of all or just certain client or client based network printers. There is as well an configuration for end-user self-provisioning but not in th same context / or to compare as the RDP client does.
