Brother provide Generic PCL Drivers for devices that support PCL. We recommend the use of these drivers when using the Citrix Presentation Server™ (Citrix® MetaFrame®) software on some Brother monochrome laser printer/multi-function product which supports PCL 4 or higher.You must install the printer driver on both the server and the client PC.
- Server Setup (Windows® 2000, Windows Server® 2003/ 2008/ 2012 and Windows NT® terminal server)
- Client PC Setup

The Brother Generic PCL Driver offers a simpler user interface than a standard Brother driver, and does not include all the driver features
you would expect from a standard Brother Windows driver.
For example, the Driver does not include:
- Graphical user interface
- Secure Printing capabilities
- Poster Printing capabilities
- Manual Duplex Printing capabilities
- Booklet Printing capabilities
- HQ-1200 Printing capabilities
The Driver contains two printer drivers, which must be installed using the "Add Printer Wizard". If you have several different printer products, click here and see what printer driver should be installed for each product.
