SparkView has resource redirection (clipboard, drive, audio redirection etc.) disabled by default for safety reasons. You need to implicitly enable them by setting up extra parameters.
Please check the Administrator’s Manual for all parameters you can use.
Example of “enable clipboard redirection”:
var r = new svGlobal.Rdp('ws://gatewayAddr/RDP?server=192.168.12.117&mapClipboard=on');

SparkView will use “MS Publisher Imagesetter” as the default printer driver, because all Windows have this driver installed by default. We found some problems with this driver: It woks good if you print only few pages, it’ll generate huge raw printing file (>1GB) if you are printing more than 50 pages. It’s better to change the printer driver in the gateway.conf:
printerDriver = HP Color LaserJet 8500 PS
You should make sure your RDP server has this printer driver installed. This is how to find a PostScript printer driver:
Copy the selected printer name then “Cancel”. You don’t need to actually install it, then you set up this printer driver in gateway.conf.
Please make sure it’s a PostScript or PCL printer. You need to set up the PostScript to PDF converter or PCL to PDF converter accordingly in gateway.conf.
printerDriver = HP Universal Printing PS
