You may now send prints directly to the VizLab printers from your personal computer while on campus or on the VPN. This is a two-step process: first, you must install the PaperCut print client and second, you must install necessary drivers and connect to the printers via the print server. Please see instructions for Windows and Mac OS X below.

To send a print from your personal computer, the PaperCut Client software must be running.
Please note: due to software licensing restrictions, you cannot connect directly to the HP Z6200 large format color printers on Mac OS.  If you need to print to these printers and you are using Mac OS, please use web print or the VizLab computers instead.
