Printing to MCECS Printers using our Windows Print Server

NOTE: You will need to be connected to a VPN. (See our VPN Services Page for details.)

This procedure will only work if you have local administrator (ie: root) privileges on your Mac.

In recent years, we have noticed that accessing MCECS windows-based printers from a Mac has become less stable. We have not been able to conclusively determine what causes these issues so we present two methods of configuring your Mac to print to our Windows print servers.

One of these methods will hopefully work for you. If you have problems with both methods (and you have confirmed that you are successfully on the VPN and it still fails), we recommend you use webprint.
