Connecting a USB printer to a Wyse S30

Connecting a USB printer to a Wyse S30

I am having a problem trying to connect a usb printer to a Wyse S30 terminal?  Does anyone of any suggestions?

RE: Connecting a USB printer to a Wyse S30

How to Connect a USB Printer to a thinclient:

Step 1. (assuming you already unpacked Printer and have the parts lying in front of you), attach USB cable to Printer...

Step 2. Plug the USB cable to Thin Client, either the two front or the two in the back (Wyse S30)

Step 3. Turn on printer.

Step 4. turn on thin client.

According to your SPARSE question, that is the answer...


"The Windows CE 5.0 universal serial bus (USB) printer class driver installs the sample Printer Control Language (PCL) printer driver as the default."

the only thing I can suggest, is that you post more information as to what printer you are trying to get functioning!


"If it works don't fix it! If it doesn't use a sledgehammer..."

What Ben means is we need more info.

Operating System on the Thinclient, and a slightly more verbose explanation of where it is you are having problems.

Such as: "

"The Thin client cannot detect the printer"

"The Thin client has no available USB ports"

"The Drivers supplied, will not install"

Something along those lines would help us greatly.
