Citrix continues to gain momentum in a wide range of industries including healthcare, insurance, banking, manufacturing, automotive and telecommunications. This demonstrates the value that a Citrix access infrastructure brings to any organization that needs to make information easily, securely and instantly available to anyone, from anywhere, at any time, regardless of the access device or network they are using, or the type of information source they are accessing. Due to concerns such as rationalising IT equipment, ensuring secure connections and reducing cost of IT systems maintenance, an increasing number of companies are choosing to migrate to the Citrix environment.
At Epson, we understand the importance of Citrix and make it easy to share printing resources for Citrix. All Epson printer drivers are compatible with Windows NT4 TSE and Windows 2000. Therefore, users can enjoy easy and secure printing under Citrix Meta frame XP with the full range of Epson printers.

Linux and Unix:
Many current printers have an embedded PostScript interpreter, which controls the rendering of pages to paper using their PostScript description. All modern Linux desktop applications that have a print option will produce PostScript data to print full-page documents. While PostScript is regarded as standard for producing documents to be printed on Linux, the printer itself doesn’t have to understand PostScript. In many cases - especially with entry level printers - PostScript data will have to be translated to the native page description language of the printer through the use of a special conversion filter. There are a number of excellent systems to choose from. CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) is a popular option and recommended for most users; it has excellent PostScript printer support, offers IPP support, a Web interface and a number of other features. Epson provides a wide range of Linux compatible printing and scanning solutions. You can download drivers to support Linux here.
