Printing, Copiers, and Scanning
This page provides information on how to configure your computer to use the CSAIL printing infrastructure. Print spooling is handled by a software package called CUPS, which runs on the CSAIL print spooler. Printing service is available for just about any operating system, since CUPS is backward-compatible with LPR (an older UNIX printing system), and all printers are available via Microsoft Windows printer sharing.
or stop by 32-270 if you experience any problems with our printing services; that is, print job spooling, client configuration issues, printer jams, toner, paper, or other physical issues with printers.
If you are using a laptop, and plan on printing from the CSAIL wireless network
(StataCenter or CSAILPrivate), you should:
- Obtain CSAIL certificates so that you can access the Wireless Registration page.
- Register your wireless device. You can register your wireless device on the WirelessRegistration page.
If you only plan on printing while connected to the wired network, certificates and device registration are not necessary, and you can skip the steps above.
Now, find the printer name and model in the List of Public Printers and their drivers
. You will need this information later in the process:
