The virtual printing feature allows end users with View Client on Windows systems to use local or network printers from a View desktop without requiring that additional print drivers be installed in the View desktop. The location-based printing feature allows you to map View desktops to the printer that is closest to the endpoint client device.

With virtual printing, after a printer is added on a local Windows computer, View adds that printer to the list of available printers on the View desktop. No further configuration is required. For each printer available through this feature, you can set preferences for data compression, print quality, double-sided printing, color, and so on. Users who have administrator privileges can still install printer drivers on the View desktop without creating a conflict with the virtual printing component.

To send print jobs to a USB printer, you can either use the USB redirection feature or use the virtual printing feature.

The location-based printing feature is available for both Windows and non-Windows client systems. Location-based printing allows IT organizations to map View desktops to the printer that is closest to the endpoint client device. For example, as a doctor moves from room to room in a hospital, each time the doctor prints a document, the print job is sent to the nearest printer. Using this feature does require that the correct printer drivers be installed in the View desktop.
