We are happy to announce that students can now print from their own laptops at TC! In order to configure this, you will need to add a printer to your Mac. The steps below will explain how this is done.
In order to add a print queue to your Mac, open the System Preferences application, which can be accessed from the Launchpad or the Apple Menu.
Once inside of System Preferences, you will need to select the Print & Scan preference pane.
When you open the Add Printer window, you will need to click the "IP" button at the top of the window. You should ensure the "Line Printer Daemon - LPD" Protocol is selected. The Address of the printer is "goprintweb.tc.columbia.edu". Next, you will need to add a Queue. A list of the available queues is available below this section.
Once you have added the printer, you will be asked to finish setting up your printer. The settings for an HP LaserJet 4250 are depicted below, where "Duplex Unit" is checked, and "Optional Tray 3" has a "500-Sheet Input Tray". All HP LaserJet 4250 printers should be configured this way. Any other printer you have setup should be left at the default settings.
The GoPrint interface will allow you to release your print jobs, redirect to another printer, and cancel your print jobs. Value can be added by clicking the "Add Value" button, visiting the linked CashNet site, printing your receipt, and handing it in to a lab consultant in 242 Horace Mann or 345 Macy Hall. We are currently working with the GoPrint vendor to make this process directly deposit funds into your GoPrint account.
