List of printers
Note: all printers print double sided (duplex) - if you have problems getting this to work, please ask Bob.
- HP Color LaserJet 4700dn on 22.214.171.124 in 6th floor lab
- HP LaserJet 2430 (b/w) on 126.96.36.199 in 6th floor lab
- HP LaserJet 2015 (b/w) on 188.8.131.52 in Room 520
Please please please: replace toner when needed (shake and replace first - sometimes this gets another 1000 pages!) - and put the old cartridge and box on Bob or Yasmeen's desk so that we can re-order well before your next major deadline.
Mac instructions for setting up ls-fckprn1.saf.ic.ac.uk
- Open Utilities -> Printer Setup Utility
- Select "Default Browser"
- Enter "Room 520" in search box
- Click OK a few times
Windows instructions for setting up ls-fckprn1.saf.ic.ac.uk
Following Windows logic, you must add your network printer as a "local printer" and then jump through several hoops before you get the thing configured.
After it has failed to find a plug and play printer, click next until you get to "create a new port" -> "Standard TCP/IP"
After that, paste in ls-fckprn1.saf.ic.ac.uk
When you get to choosing drivers, note that there is a generic "HP LaserJet" driver that you can use. You do not need to share your printer.
It should work... please don't all print a test-page!
Use A4 paper by default on Mac
At least one of our printers (room 520) will wait for you to press a button on the actual printer before printing a "Letter" document on A4 paper. If your Mac has "Letter" paper as default in "Page setup" for all applications, you can change this by going to Applications→Utilities→Printer Setup Utility→Preferences. You'll see a default paper option.
