Main Printers

You can print to the shared departmental printers from your laptop or self-administered desktop using Windows print queues on the departmental server. Windows, OS X and linux systems are all capable of printing to these Windows (aka SMB) queues. Note that you will need an account on the server in order to access the Windows/SMB printer queues.

If you are using one of the linux workstations administered by RHPCS then queues are already set up for you and you don't need to add any.

See below for a listing of the available printers with smb queue names.
