Printer Instructions

Printing to cluster printers

You may print to cluster printers from a cluster computer or your own computer.  All B&W cluster printers use the single queue "PawPrint" on \\ssprint-prod1 and the Color printer in Frist 300 uses the queue "PawPrintColor" on \\ssprint-prod1. Cluster computers are automatically configured to allow printing to either queue.  To print to the queue from your computer, please see the instructions in OIT KnowledgeBase solution 8329. You can also submit print jobs from your mobile device via Google Cloud Print or by sending an attachment from your Princeton email address to (for B&W print jobs) or (for Color print jobs). Please see the instructions in OIT KnowledgeBase solution 1175 for more details. For information on using Google Cloud Print, please see the instructions in OIT KnowledgeBase solution 1212.

Changing paper

Paper is provided on site for every cluster printer.  You may refill the printer with paper as needed.  

Paper is located near the printer and are usually in plain view.  If you cannot locate paper, refer to locating a cluster printer's consumables for the location of all consumables.  You may also contact the OIT cluster administrators at

The Papercut print accounting system

Each cluster printer is managed by the Papercut print accounting system. This system helps reduce the amount of paper wasted with accidental printing. When a document is printed to a Papercut-managed queue, the document will not print until it is released at the PRINT RELEASE STATION located next to the printer to which you sent your print request.

For more information about using the Papercut print release system, see Papercut print release system.
