How to Print from Web Print

Web Print is a driver-less printing service from PaperCut which enables users to print by uploading documents through a web browser. It provides a simple way of printing from user owned devices such as personal laptops, mobiles, iPad etc. without having to install printer drivers and managing server authentication. With Web Print, users are authenticated when they log into the PaperCut NG end-user web interface. Any documents they upload can then be tracked against their user name. Users have access to the standard selection of features normally available for on-campus printing, including access to shared accounts.

Please follow the steps below to print using Web Print to the printers in the Open Access Computer Labs
