All About Citrixprint Server

I am having an issue with my users printing blank PDF's from IE8 Citrix PS 4.5(Win2k3 Sp2). The prints come out blank and only has the following printed at the bottom of the page - 'file:/ / C:'Document/ user name1.001/locals1 Temp f JDGCV83T.htm'. Mar 12, 2020 This issue is common on Windows 8, 10, and Windows Server 2012. This problem arises when the Citrix Print Manager Service stops or restarts, leaving the “CpSvc.exe” process in an unresponsive state. As a workaround, you need to stop the “CpsSvc.exe” process restarting or stopping the Citrix Print Manager Service.

All about citrix

Printing remains a business critical function for many organizations and is key to a smooth user experience in virtual desktop environments. ThinPrint is the fastest and most secure printing solution available, enabling you to significantly increase the efficiency and flexibility of your Citrix environment.

As the pioneer in Citrix printing, ThinPrint was the first Citrix Ready print solution. Its extreme reliability is proven with over 100 Service Provider Partners and 25,000 corporate clients of all sizes, based in all industries.

The advantage of this approach is that now users get all their 'normal' printers they are used to using when not in Citrix, maintain their normal default printer, etc. If they are home using a home printer, that is what they get inside Citrix. And because you are using the Citrix UPD, you do not need to install any drivers on the Citrix server. When using network-provisioned print devices (print server) by default, Citrix will try and use the network printing pathway whenever possible. As a user, you will have an active session on one of the Citrix (XenApp) servers. If users with all types of printers are causing drivers to be installed on the MetaFrame XP servers, the servers will need to manage a lot of drivers. Additionally, if driver auto-replication is used (discussed later in this chapter), the printer driver replication process will take even longer.

Why ThinPrint is the Best Citrix Printing Solution

Here are the most important benefits of ThinPrint for Citrix customers:

  • Proven in more than 12,000 Citrix customer projects

    15 years of experience in over 12,000 Citrix projects with up to 180,000 users and a 100% focus on printing allow us to provide simply the very best printing solution for Citrix.

  • Ensures the best Citrix session performance

    Citrix sessions are kept entirely free from the negative aspects of printing. Only ThinPrint supports connection-oriented bandwidth control, which assists even when multiple users are printing large documents.

  • Guarantees fast, reliable and secure Citrix printing

    ThinPrint guarantees the highest output speed and above all reliability in even the most complex systems and environments. ThinPrint combines different caching, streaming and compression methods, which can be used for any transmission protocol (TCP/IP, RDP, ICA/HDX). All print jobs are encrypted, even up to the printer if necessary. Additionally, load balancing for print servers and clients ensures even better performance.

  • Transparent, simple print management

    Centralization of Citrix print management and clear, easy-to-use tools significantly reduce the administration burden. Allocation of printers for hundreds of users is completed in just a few clicks.

  • Fewer helpdesk requests: One driver – all options

    Citrix printing has never been easier. Users are always assigned the right printer and the same print dialog is available for all printers. In addition, the reliability of print jobs through ThinPrint significantly reduces support requests.

  • High availability and scalability

    ThinPrint offers a new dimension of high-availability printing for Citrix. Load balancing and failover for print servers and clients consistently ensures reliable enterprise printing. ThinPrint verifiably reduces the demand placed on network infrastructure, printers and server hardware and, if worst comes to worst, gives you the options to get print systems back up and running within minutes.

  • Complete reporting of print costs

    Tracking and Reporting provide a full overview of printing costs and printing behavior per group of users, printers, and more. Predefined or customized reports clearly highlight further potential savings.

  • Support of Apple AirPrint™ for Citrix iPad sessions

    ThinPrint even extends printing to Citrix Workspace App (Citrix Receiver) sessions on iPads and iPhones to local AirPrint™-printers. More on mobile session printing »

White Paper: Citrix Printing with ThinPrint

Many organizations worldwide use Citrix to virtualize desktops and applications into a secure on-demand service available to any user, anywhere, on any device. Users are able to access their Windows desktop from tablets, smartphones, laptops and thin clients no matter where they are. This centralization of the desktop environment provides control to IT departments while reducing configuration time spent on individual devices. But there is one problem for users of Citrix, printing. Because Citrix creates a centralized environment, there is no way for users to access printers outside of that network.
