Printing with Cameyo is seamless and can be done directly from the browser to the end user's network or personal printers.

There are several methods of providing printing capability to users running applications in Cameyo. By far the most common (and easiest) method is to use the Cameyo Virtual Printer.

Cameyo Virtual Printer

The Cameyo Virtual Printer is a printer that is automatically available in Cameyo application sessions. When a print job is sent to it, it will render the print job to PDF, then send that PDF down to the end user's web browser and request it to print the PDF. The user will then be able to send the print job to any printer they have installed locally on their device.

From the Cameyo browser session:

  • Click File > Print.
  • In the list of printers drop down, select the Cameyo Virtual Printer.
  • Click Print.
  • The local browser's print dialog will open.
  • Select the desired printer and click Print.

Server-side Printing

Printers may be installed on the Cameyo application servers themselves, which will allow users to print to printers that they may not have installed on their endpoint devices (such as to an office printer while they are working at a café). Printers installed on a Cameyo server will generally come in two main forms - locally-installed TCP/IP printers and print-server-based session printers.

Local TCP/IP Printers

If a printer is installed directly onto the Cameyo server (including printer drivers and printer network ports), that printer will by default be available to all users who run an application on that server. Print jobs that are printed to these printers will be sent over the network directly to the printer devices. In order for this to work, make sure that there is network connectivity between the Cameyo server and the printer device.

Session Printers

Session printers are printers that are available in individual user sessions. These printers are generally hosted on a print server, and the printers are made available to users via group policy, login scripts, or third party print management utilities. This configuration will usually be done outside of Cameyo, though login scripts may be set up to be launched via PowerTags or script files.
