How do I connect my BYOD Windows to the Learning Commons printer?

Make sure you are connected to the SMIS-WIN network before starting.

There are main steps to setting up your printer and printing:

  1. Installing the printer
  2. Printing with authentication
  3. Retrieving your print job

Installing the printer

You need to first connect to the print server, and then add the printer.

  1. Click on the Start menu, and then Computer
  2. Click in the location bar of the Computer window, and enter
    \\print.smis.ac.jp\

    Then click Enter.
    Windows location bar

  3. Enter your St. Mary's username and password (the same as you use to connect to SMIS-WIN), with the username in the form
    SMIS\username

    Click OK.
    Windows authentication

  4. When the window opens, find N359MFPC1 and double-click on it.
    N359MFPC1
    It will take a few moments while the printer driver is installed.
  5. If you go to Start menu and then Devices and Printers, you should see the printer listed there.

Printing with authentication

Make sure you have the correct page set-up, and authenticate to print.

  1. Before printing, make sure your document size is A4 or A4 small:
    A4 document size
  2. In the Print dialog, select the Printer Name that you specified when you installed the printer. Then click OK to print
  3. You may be asked to enter your username and password to print. Enter your St. Mary's username and password (the same as you use to connect to SMIS-WIN):
    Enter username and password

Retrieving your print job

After printing, log in at the printer to retrieve your print job.

  1. If the printer is sleeping, click the login/logout button to wake the printer.
  2. Tap on Username and enter your username (the same as above)
  3. Tap on Password and enter your password
  4. Tap on Log In
  5. If your log-in is successful, you should see your document name on the display. Tap on the document to select it, and then tap the Print button.

Troubleshooting

No network connection

Make sure you're connected to SMIS-WIN to print.

Wrong document size

Your document appears on the printer's display, but does not print. A small red light is flashing at the corner of the display.

Typically this means the page layout does not match any of the available paper sizes. You can choose to print US Letter to A4, or you can clear the print job and resend it from your computer (after changing the page layout to an available paper size).

Failed authorization

Make sure to use the same username and password that you use to connect to SMIS-WIN.
