Use this form to request that a unix queue be established for a
printer. Before filling out this form, you need to:
We currently support only HP printers, although
we will make entries for other types of printers provided they can act
as their own print server or you have a machine that can act as a
server for it. If you are asking for a queue for an
unsupported printer, please note that, along with any special
considerations, in the `Additional Instructions' field on
the form below. Please note that:
Your printer has to be hooked to the
network before a queue can be provided. To get your printer
hooked to the network, see items 1 and 2 above.
If this is a new printer, you will find the name assigned to it on the
form you get back from the Help Desk in response to your "SLAC
Nodename and Address Request Form".
- Call the help desk to get your printer into the queue for network
- Fill out the "SLAC Nodename and Address Request Form" available
at the Help Desk in Building 50 in order to get a name and ip address for
your printer. Please note that we request
you follow our standard naming convention for printers. HP printers
should be named starting
with the letters 'hp' and followed by something that
identifies the location of your printer. For instance, we have
printers with names like hpae1a, located in building
A&E on the first floor, and hpcgb3b, located in the computer
building on the 3rd floor.
Please enter your Email address, Printer Name,
Printer Model, Physical Location, and System Administrator. Specify whether or not to print header pages or if your
printer has the capability to duplex.
