Chrome Devices as Release Stations

Hi All,

 

Long time follower, first time poster.   We have been gearing up with your new Pharos environment and we have been exploring and testing different ways to set up release stations.  In our environment we plan to put  a "older" Windows computer  next to Pharos printer (non-MFD) to serve as a release station. 

 

Rather than have  all the Windows OS overhead running on these "older" machines, just to run a small app... we started thinking..what if we could use our cheap chrome devices and Citrix (XenDesktop/App) to publish multiple Pharos Release station apps, each published app would be only allow releasing to that printer it is next to.  I have this working on a Chromebox with just one Pharos printer, and it works great!! Unfortunately , I run into issues when adding more printers/creating more printer release station apps....I can't seem to find a way to customize the Pharos release station to only make it point to a specific printer....is there an argument or command line switch I should be using? Is this even possible? Or must each release station be tied to a specific host name?

 

Any direction is appreciated.

Cheers

Dave
