When determining the best print solution for your environment, consider the following:
To use the Universal Print Server with a Windows-native driver, enable the Universal Print Server. By default, if the Windows-native driver is available, it is used. Otherwise, the Universal print driver is used. To specify changes to that behavior, such as to use only the Windows-native driver or only the Universal print driver, update the Universal print driver usage policy setting.
Use the following Citrix policy settings to configure the Universal Print Server. For more information, refer to the on-screen policy settings help.
|Client printer redirection, Auto-create client printers||After the Universal Print Server is enabled, client network printers are created using the Universal print driver instead of the native drivers. Users see the same printer name as before.|
|Session printers||When you use the Citrix Universal Print Server solution, Universal print driver policy settings are honored.|
|Direct connections to print server||When the Universal Print Server is enabled and the Universal print driver usage policy setting is configured to use universal printing only, a direct network printer can be created to the print server, using the Universal print driver.|
|UPD preference||Supports EMF and XPS drivers.|
The Citrix Print Provider does not support client-side rendering.
