Back to Printing at Hamilton College

Installing the Printer
Installing the PaperCut Client
Using the PaperCut Client

NOTE: In January 2009, ITS implemented a print management system.  Printing from your own personal computer can be done in one of two ways:

  1. “Lite” printing through the Web – https://printx.hamilton.edu:9192.  Use this to print Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or PDF documents.  See Web Print Using PaperCut - https://my.hamilton.edu/information-technology-services/resource-center/web-print-using-papercut-1-1 for details.
  2. Install a printer and the PaperCut client on your computer and print from any application on your computer.  These instructions follow.

Installing the Printer

  1. Click on your Windows Start button and open the control panel.

  1. Depending on your view:
    1. Click on the Printers icon          OR
    2. Click under Hardware and Sound, click on Printer.

  1. Click on Add a printer.

  1. The next two steps need to be done in quick succession to prevent the computer from getting taken off the network.  Click on Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer, and then quickly click on The printer that I want isn’t listedDo not allow Windows to spend time automatically searching for available printers.

   

  1. Choose the second option and select Browse. In the window that appears, type \\printx\ followed by the name of the network printer as shown.  Be sure to include any dashes (-) that appear in the name of the printer.
