Network Printing

CS hosts a number of network attached printers on the 4th and 5th floors of Rice Hall. There is also a Ricoh scanner/copier in the 5th floor mailing room. There is no cost associated with printing, anyone with a CS account can print.

New Public Printer on the 5th floor

We have added a new printer (“printer025”) to replace CS-BW1, which has reached end of life. Detailed directions for adding this printer on a Windows, Mac, or Linux based desktop can be found at this link: Xerox VersaLink B610

The department hosts a Windows print server as well as a CUPS server for Unix printing. Linux systems should be pre-configured to print to CUPS. Windows systems should be set up with the Windows printers.

You must authenticate using your Windows credentials to use Samba printing. From Windows, you need to enter your user name as CSDOM\username. From other operating systems, you may be given a domain field, in which you should enter CSDOM. If no field for domain is available, you may need to enter CSDOM in with your user name like with Windows.

We are consolidating printing to a new print server named “printserver”, which is now in production. This will allow printing from any Operating System through one single print server. Example information about this can be found below.
