Your computer must be connected to the college's network to add a network printer or copier.

You must have PaperCut installed on your computer to print to a network printer or copier. Click here for instructions on installing PaperCut.

For instructions on using the network copiers, see the TOSHIBA Copiers or KYOCERA Copiers articles. 


Adding a Network Printer - PC

Step 1:
Click the Start/Windows Button and type "\\ecpaper" at the "Search programs and files" run line and press Enter.

Step 2:This will launch a list of the network printers and copiers.  From this list, double-click the appropriate printer or copier name from the list.  This will automatically begin the installation of the printer.

The naming convention is as follows:
  • Starting letters represent the building (e.g. N = Nicarry)
  • 3-digit room number (e.g. 101 = Room 101).  For buildings without room numbers, a generic placeholder (100, 200, etc.) will be used.  Check the label on the printer for the correct number.
  • The ending letters represent the type of printer.
    • L = Laser Printer
    • D = Deskjet Printer
    • M = Multifunction Copier
    • c = Color (any devices without a c are black & white only)
Step 3:Once the installation completes, the print queue will automatically open.  You can close this window as well as the printer listing window.  The new printer is now available for printing from your computer.
 
Step 4:Restart your computer to assure access to the new printer.
