Will this support linux clients. If I use ubuntu can I transfer my printers from my linux machine to a windows host so I can print?

If not what about if I connect to a linux client will it transfer to that?

In 5.2, remote printing will only support Windows clients. We're looking to increase that to OSX and Linux, but I don't have an ETA on when it'll be released.

Is it possible to obtain a dropdown list of printers installed on the local computer launched with a button available in the top toolbar. It is very important that we may be presented with the option to install the printers we want. Maybe like LMI, a checkmark would appear next to each manually installed printer ?

With LMI, we have the option to install selected printers, instead of installing the entire load of printers like PDF Creator, Microsoft XPS Writer, all offline on premise customers' printers that may be installed on the hosts' computer, because we work at many customers on a regular basis. We can easily end up with around 10-15 printers installed on the end user's computer, because ScreenConnect loads them all.

Thanks for considering.

Is that windows clients with the host being windows also? Just to clarify.

Can be this feature disabled? I've tested a 5.2 and I don't like to see my printers in the remote session if I don't need it.

See this thread: http://forum.screenconnect.com/yaf_postst5424_How-to-Disable-Remote-Printing-Feature--5-2.aspx#post22649

Currently you cannot disable this feature - however there have a been a lot of requests and the developers are looking into it.
