Auto-created client printers in Hp Printer


Description 

Auto-created client printers are printers that are connected to ports on users’ Win16, Win32, and Win64 client devices, Windows CE, DOS, and Macintosh OS platforms. 

Test methodology 



An HP printer was attached to the client system using a parallel cable, USB cable, or TCP/IP port. The printer was installed on the client system and drivers for the printers were downloaded from the HP Driver Support website.
The client system connected to the XenApp server farm, which verified that the client’s locally attached HP printers were available in the user’s session and that the client could print successfully to the client’s locally attached HP printers.

Network print servers in Hp Printe


Description          
           
Network print servers (not running Citrix XenApp Server) are servers with shared printers attached to them. Administrators add these shared printers into the Citrix Session Printers policy in order to make them available to all users when they connect to the server farm.
Test methodology 

HP printers were attached to the print server using a parallel cable, USB cable or TCP/IP port and connecting to the printer through HP Jetdirect. These printers were configured for multiple users. Drivers for the printers were downloaded from the HP Driver Support website. 

A printer policy was then created for Session printers and a User filter created for the Session printer policy for domain users, allowing domain users logged on to the XenApp server farm to verify that the shared network printer was available in the client session, and that the client could print successfully.

The printer's wireless network settings must match those of your network, which includes the
following:
Communication mode
Network Name (SSID)
Channel (ad-hoc networks only)
Authentication type
1. Reconnect the cable.
2. Compare the network settings to those that appear on the printer's configuration page.
To print a configuration page, when the printer is in the Ready state, press and hold
the GO button until the Ready light starts blinking. For more information, see
Configuration page.
3. Do one of the following to find the settings for your network:
If the printer is communicating with the network using the infrastructure mode, open
the Wireless Access Point's (WAP) configuration utility.
● If the printer is communicating with the network using the ad-hoc mode, open the
configuration utility for the network card installed in your computer.
4. Compare the settings and note any settings that are different. Possible problems include:
The WAP filters hardware addresses (MAC addresses). See Wireless access point
(WAP) filters MAC addresses.
One of these settings in the printer might be incorrect: communication mode,
network name (SSID), channel (ad-hoc networks only), or security settings. See
Printer has the wrong wireless network settings.
5. Reprint the configuration page.

Software Installation Stop

The HP software installation stalls or stops at specific percentages or at specific points during the installation.

Follow these steps for the Windows 7 operating system.

Workaround: Check functionality and skip remaining installation

If your installation stalled towards the end of the process, such as 96% or step 3 of 4, you might be able to use your printer without troubleshooting.

Step 1: Check for a hidden error message

Sometimes, a hidden error message can stop the progress of the installation. Follow these steps to check the computer for a hidden error message.
Click the title bar at the top of the installation window, and then drag it to the right. Look for an error message that was hidden behind the installation window.
Click the error message. The error message displays completely in front of the installation window.
In the error message, click OK . The software installation continues.
If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting. Read More ( )
