To use the CUPS printing system, edit /etc/cups/client.conf to have the line "ServerName cups-serv.cl.cam.ac.uk". All the lab printers should then be available to you.
You could alternatively use the BSD lpr method to connect to the laboratory print server to print documents. Do not attempt to connect directly to the printers using any other means - if you do so your IP connection may be revoked. To add a printer carry out the following tasks:
- Open the System Preferences
- Double click on the Print and Fax icon under the Hardware section
- Select Set Up Printers
Make sure Share printers is not selected
- Click on Add
- Select IP printing and set the printer type to LPD/LPR
- Fill in the remaining fields as shown
Put lpr-serv.cl.cam.ac.uk in as the printer's address, select the correct model of printer and set the queue name to the name of the printer you wish to use. Click on Add.
The details of the printers including their model number can be found at http://www.ad.cl.cam.ac.uk/Printers.asp
