You have to be connected inside the DICE firewall (eg. by physical connection, informatics wireless, or ssh) to use the printers ...
On a DICE machine, use the Unix command printers -s to list the available printers, + information on models, printservers, and location. (See man printers for other options.)
Use the Printer Setup Utility (in /Applications/Utilities/ on the Mac) to add a new printer:
Printer type: LPD/LPR
Printer Address: printbp.inf.ed.ac.uk
Queue Name: lwa
Printer Model HP LaserJet 4050 Series
- Printer Type
- is LPD/LPR
- Printer Address
- is the address of the server
- Queue Name
- is the name of the printer
- Printer Model
- can be left as Generic. However, if you get it right you can access printer-specific options from the OSX print dialogs.
