Quick and Easy Printing with Mobility Print
Mobility Print is a fast and simple solution to install MCECS printers on a MacOS machine, and it is recommended that user try it out before using other methods. All general lab printers and some departmental printers can be installed using Mobility Print. Check the guide to see if your printer is available. Also note that advanced printer features, such as page collation or auto-stapling, will not be available if using Mobility Print.
Older Installation Methods
The following are two older methods for installing our Windows printers for remote printing for printers that are not included in Mobility Print or if users want to access a printer’s advanced features. In recent years we have noticed that remote printing from a Mac has become less stable. We have not been able to determine the cause of these issues, so you may need to try both options before a printer is successfully installed.
If you have problems with both methods, we recommend looking into using Web Print.
