I need your help in this scenerio! what are your 2 cents? Goal: To go to a FULL Citrix Enviroment, Aiming at Thin clients, maybe linux based Off-site: Offices connect through the internet, they have DSL/T1's. Right now they are using Citrix successfully. If they have a printer over there and they are not in our LAN. What is the best way to print there? What happens if a user needs to do CD-Burning or even Scanning Are you? familiar with a FULL citrix thin client enviroment that have solutions? Is it safe to do internet printing with Windows using the IPP? I was thinking of VPN, is there any other solution?

    We have used a product called Remote Print Manager to print to vendors printers across the internet. It works really well for us. We use it with our iSeries as well to print to printers on our WAN but not connected to the iSeries.

    Actually, we are gonna go ahead now with JetDirect Print Servers, behind a firewall. We would have the jetdirect (which has security, you can set it to accept only specific IP's and has a certificate. ) at the remote site and when the thin client prints it would do it through the internet to the JetDirect.. What do you think? it looks good to me, any problems with this?
