Printing from VMware Horizon:

The virtual printing feature lets end users use local or network printers from a remote desktop without
requiring that additional print drivers be installed in the remote desktop. For each printer available through
this feature, you can set preferences for data compression, print quality, double-sided printing, color, and so
on.
After a printer is added on the local computer, Horizon View Client adds that printer to the list of available
printers on the remote desktop. No further configuration is required.
