ScrewDrivers Essentials - Per User/Month

ScrewDrivers Essentials - The Core for printing over RDP, ICA or PCoIP

As the name implies this is the entry level product which covers the traditional printing to client printers, aka traditional ScrewDrivers. The product includes a server and client component and allows for printing from your session host over your connection protocol (RDP, ICA or PCoIP).

From version 7 this also includes the universal scanning product previously named Simplify Scanning, which solves your remote scanning driver problems.

The above picture shows the architecture of the product with a printer/scanner configured and the connection to the session agent where the universal printer/scanner is built at login.


Features of ScrewDrivers Essentials

This is a very powerful entry product, if you need to print to locally configured printers from a session running over RDP, ICA or PCoIP this is most likely a good choice. With the release of v7 client printing is also supported to Linux devices (open RDP).

To get started you will only need a client and the remote server, so no extra infrastructure is required.

By installing the server side and client component on your remote server and client you are good to go. When you login to your remote session the server component will detect that the client is installed. The client will then send the different printer properties available on the locally installed driver and the server side universal driver will build the printer(s) based on this information. This will give you printers in your session with a similar name to the one locally installed, with all the printer settings you are used to see locally.

Benefits of ScrewDrivers Essentials

  • No more printer driver testing, support any printer of your choice.
  • TMF format ensures proper output as it is a page description language that was built from the ground to cater for printing needs.
  • Print job streaming allows for faster print outs, printing will start when first page has been transferred.
  • Print job compression allows for printing over slow connections.
  • Font embedding ensures correct output.
  • No additional firewalls etc is needed as print job is sent within virtual channels inside of the communication protocol of choice.
  • Clients for Windows, Linux and MacOSX are available.
  • Supports any remote desktop platform using RDP, ICA or PCoIP. This is very good if you are running a mix of remote desktop platforms. It also means that you can run different versions of ie Citrix as the universal printing is not tied to the product client version.
  • Speeds up your login time as there are only 1 driver to be loaded at the session side, so the driver is in fact loaded already at login and the settings are transferred in milliseconds.
  • Allows for custom printer naming, that gives a printer a static name. For example the printer could be named "office printer user 1"

    This is a common requirement with applications that saves printer names as part of the application configuration.

  • Flexible default printer settings to match any requirement.
  • Allow for different default printer in session than locally, very useful if you have users that only use certain apps in the remote environment.
  • Automatic Client Updates
  • Works with Windows Virtual Desktop Remote Desktop Client (you will need Enterprise version to support the wvd web client)
