Generally available printers

For faculty:

$40 quota for self service printers

Sample print command, including account name:
   lpr -Pps_mfcf -RNonMath-CSCF  (cscf staff)
                 -Rcs8   (Master's students)
                 -Rcs9   (PhD)

CSCF staff access to printers

All CSCF staff should have access to the CSCF printer lp2_cscf in MC3047 and to the general CS printers: lp7_cs in DC3116, ljp_cs in DC2320, and lj_dc3624 in DC3624.

Printing to a file then printing from the core:

In the applications (under Windows or Linux),
Print to a file
scp filename  username@cpu102:
ssh cpu102
lpr -Pljp_cs filename

Ken's tip on printing

Here's how I use ssh to print from zonker.
This uses softbase to print, but it should work
that same way with one of the cs core machines.

ssh softbase lpr -Pljp_cs -R Rxyz001 < filename

where filename is the name of the file that I want to print.
I'm not even sure that the -R option (account number) is needed for most

If you've got ssh keys set up properly, no passwords are 
required to do this.  Without keys, ssh will end up prompting
for a password for the remote account.

Samba printing

Bill suggests that printing from an arbitrary machine by a user with an account and printing privileges in the CS core, should be able to setup a Samba printer.
