IMPORTANT: After the document has been sent to the print queue, when you swipe your card it will not show your UANET ID. It will show the hostname of the machine. To find your hostname click Finder and it will be the name next to the house icon.

Content.png The print queues are in the process of being moved from print server labprtmb1 to uauniprint1. If you can't print and see that your queue is no longer listed under labprtmb1, please visit or contact the Support Center at 330-972-6888 to have your print queue updated on your machine.

If These Steps Do NOT Work
Please note these steps are only for use on the 10.5.X (Leopard) system and the 10.6.X (Snow Leopard) System. This should work on 10.5.2 but it is highly recommended you upgrade to the newest 10.5 release(10.5 and 10.5.1 probably will not work with these steps). Sometimes Apple has trouble picking up new Enterprise Wireless Network Settings. Be sure to clear the keychain of any old login information. Also, toggling the Airport on and off sometimes will force new settings to take action. If this does not work, restarting the computer after the settings are all in place is known to be effective. If all these steps fail, your more than welcome to contact the Support Center at 330-972-6888 or visit us at The MediaTech Services Desk in Bierce Library.
