Installing printers in Windows
This method may work best if your Windows machine is in the EECS Domain (Active Directory), and you have local administrative access.
- Click Start –> Run
- Type “\\print” and press return.
- Double-click on the printer you want to use, and follow the on-screen prompts to install it on your system.
Installing printers in Windows via lpd
If you run into trouble with the previous method, you can instead install printers using their lpd queue on print.eecs.
