Terminal Services Printing Support
If the local client detects and supports the printer, then full function printing using port redirection through 

Citrix ICA or Microsoft RDP is supported for parallel and USB printers if the appropriate printer driver is 

loaded on the terminal server. Please check printer documentation to ensure that Terminal Services or 

Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server is supported by your printer.
When running an ICA or RDP session, you cannot print from a local application. The terminal server 

session has control of the printer port and will not release to the local application.

Microsoft Windows CE Operating System

Local Printing
HP Compaq thin clients with Windows CE include Westtek Jetcet Print for printing from the browser or 

other local applications. Jetcet Print drivers are based upon industry standard printer languages and 

provide compatibility for select Hewlett Packard, Epson, and Cannon parallel and USB printers as follows:

Hewlett Packard PCL3 or higher version compatible Hewlett Packard printers

Cannon BJC compatible Cannon printers

Epson ESC/P2 and ESC/P compatible Epson printers

Postscript compatible printers

Please check your printer documentation or contact your printer supplier to determine if your printer is 

compliant with the above standards. A list of HP tested and supported printers is available in the product 

Quickspecs. Please see 

www.hp.com

 for the latest Quickspecs. HP cannot guarantee that a printer will 

function properly if it is not on the list of tested printers for HP Compaq thin client products. Be sure to test 

printer compatibility in your deployment environment.
For a list of compatible printers, see the Westtek Web site at
