Sample print command, including account name:
   lpr -Pps_mfcf -RNonMath-CSCF  (cscf staff)

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
users.

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.
