Important changes to the department's printing system (Feb 2013) - please read

The Computer Science Department is introducing the Follow-You print service to run in parallel (for the moment at least) with the department's existing printing service. Difficulty in sourcing toner cartridges for HP LaserJets will mean that the department's own printing service will cease once the toner supply has been exhausted. Additionally, if (when) you have run out of Computer Science print credit then you will have to use the Follow-You service for printing as HELPDESK will not accept any more monies for print quota. You can check your Computer Science print quota at https://cgi.csc.liv.ac.uk/cgi-bin/pykota.pl

New Ricoh MFP printers have been installed in strategic locations throughout the Ashton and Holt Buildings. The MFP printers
* are A4, duplex and colour capable (several also support A3)
* support copying and stapling facilities and
* support the Scan-To-Me feature.

Setting up Follow-You on Computer Science student PCs

The Follow-You Student printer queue has already been setup on the student PCs but in order to use the printer, you need to set your CSD username/password credentials ...

1. Click on the Print Server Properties on the Windows Task Bar (at the bottom of the screen) as in Fig 0.



Fig 0

The Print Server Properties dialog box will be displayed as in Fig 1.



Fig 1

2. Now click the Ports tab, scroll down to the printer marked Student and select it see Fig 2 -
Note not Student (Double Sided) or Student (Single Sided)!



Fig 2

3. Now click Configure Port and the Enter Network Password window will open (fig 3). In the following steps, you need to enter your CSD credentials - NOT your Computer Science credentials.



Fig 3

4. In the User Name field enter your CSD username (aka MWS username) prepended with livad\ (CSD's domain name) ; so, for instance, if your CSD username was mws_username, you would enter livad\mws_username. Enter your CSD password in the Password field and press OK - Fig 4



Fig 4

(Replace mws_username with your CSD username in Fig 4.)

5. When you correctly enter your CSD credentials, the Enter Network Password window will disappear, leaving just the Print Server Properties window (as in Fig 2) - you can now click Close (previously OK) to continue.

6. If, on the other hand, you incorrectly entered your CSD credentials, you will see an error window as in Fig 5. You must correctly enter your CSD credentials before continuing (return to step 4) and remember use your CSD credentials, not your Computer Science credentials.



Fig 5

7. Note, if you change your CSD password then you will have to follow these instructions again but in step 3 onwards, the Enter Network Password window is replaced by the Configure Internet Port Window instead - Fig 6. Simply change the Password field to reflect your new CSD password.

Using Follow-You printing on the Student PCs

Warning: Before you can print using the Student printer, your CSD print account must be in credit. To pay into your print account, access http://webcredit.liv.ac.uk and use your credit or debit card or pay by coin or note (£5 and £10 only) or by credit or debit card using the print credit machine located in each of the two main Libraries.

Print costs can be found at http://www.liv.ac.uk/csd/printing/print-costs and
you can find out your Follow-You balance and print history at https://equcas.livad.liv.ac.uk:2941/webtools/start.html

To print to the Student printer, select the printer labelled Student on https://print3.liv.ac.uk from the drop-down list. For example in Word it would look something like Fig 7.
