Aberdeen Uni printing

Submitted by ormiret on Thu, 21/12/2006 - 22:38.

To print from the wireless hotspots at aberdeen university you need to set up a printer with the URI:


smb://username:password@UOA/hotprint.abdn.ac.uk/hold

Where the username and password should be entered seperately to the URL (most GUI setup tools the URI becomes:


smb://UOA/hotprint.abdn.ac.uk/hold

The smb:// is often assumed and not needed (with dumb tools it might even cause problems).

The pinters should work with being set up as any postscript printer, I've previously used various things in the LaserJet 4000 series without any problems.
