Windows

To print via the CS Windows print server you need to authenticate against it first, and then setup each printer you want to use. The steps are:

Open up a command shell and type in the following, changing "mst3k" to your user name:

net use \\kore.cs.virginia.edu\IPC$ /USER:CSDOM\mst3k /PERSISTENT:Yes

Enter your password at the prompt and await successful login to KORE.

Once you are authenticated against KORE, open the 'Devices and Printers' interface. Select 'Add a printer' then click on 'Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer', then on 'The printer I want is not listed'.

In the 'Add Printer' window select the 'Select a shared printer by name' option and enter "\\KORE.CS.VIRGINIA.EDU\" and wait briefly - the available printers should appear in a list. Select the one you want and follow the prompts to finish setting it up.

The common printers are CS-BW1 in the 5th floor print room and CS-BW2 in the 4th floor print room.

Note: The printers you set up will persist, but the IPC$ connection will have to be recreated after each new login. For convenience the command above can be saved in a .bat file and run from there.

Linux

To add department networked printers available to your laptop, edit /etc/cups/client.conf to include the following lines:

ServerName cups.cs.virginia.edu
Encryption IfRequested

Then, restart CUPS:

sudo /etc/init.d/cupsys restart
