  • Regular Printing

    • Adding CEOAS Printers To Windows

      • To print to college printers in CEOAS using Windows, you’ll need to connect to the college print server and setup a local print queue that connects to a print queue on the print server.
      • To start, open Windows Explorer, and in the location field type: \\ceoas-print.ceoas.oregonstate.edu

         

      • Please note: if you are not attached to OSU’s Windows Active Directory (OSU AD), you’ll be prompted for a username and password. You’ll need to use your ONID credentials for this, and specify your domain, which in this case is ‘onid’, e.g.,

        Login name: onid\burtw

        Password: <your onid password>

        There is typically a pause while you get logged in. Once you’re logged in, the screen should change to look like:

      • From this, double-click on the printer you want to setup a queue for. A small window will briefly appear that will indicate printer drivers being installed and a local print queue is being setup. Once it is finished, a small window of the newly created local print queue will appear:

      • You should then open an item you want to print and try printing. For longer documents, you should see it appear in your print queue:

      • Once it is finished, it should disappear from the print queue, and your printout should be ready at the printer.

         

  • Adding CEOAS printers to Mac OSX (Pre-Ventura)
     

    • Open Printers and Scanners in System Preferences.


       
    • Click the + button to add a new printer.


    • Right Click/Option Click/Two Finger Click an icon in the top left to open the

      context menu and choose “Customize Toolbar”. This only needs to be done once.


       
    • Drag the Advanced icon to the right of the existing icons in the top left, again this only needs to be done once.



    • Click on the Advanced icon, then fill out the fields as shown. The URL

      starts with: "smb://ceoas-print.ceoas.oregonstate.edu/"followed by the

      name of the printer listed on the next page and then "?encryption=no".

      The printer name is case-sensitive! Also, be sure to use “Generic PostScript Printer”.


      Example:
      smb://ceoas-print.ceoas.oregonstate.edu/NameOfPrinterFromList?encryption=no

      There is a current issue with some of the latest updates to MacOS that

      breaks printing to Windows print servers. If, after a MacOS update your

      printing breaks, try removing and re-adding your printer with "?

      encryption=no" added to the end as shown above.

       

      Be sure to enable Duplex Printing Unit to allow for double sided printing.

      The names of the printers are as follows*:

      Burt127c-Color

      Burt290a-Color

      Burt290a-Copier

      Burt326-Color

      *Printer names are case sensitive


       

    • Be sure to enable Duplex Printing Unit to allow for double sided printing.


       

    • After trying your first print job, you will be asked for a username and

      password. Enter your ONID username and password here. If the

      printing attempt fails with a “Holding for Authentication” error, that

      means that you’ve entered your username and/or password incorrectly.

      Try printing again and entering the correct ONID username and password.

      Once you are sure that it’s working, you can check the “Remember this

      password in my keychain” option.

      If you have selected the “Remember this password” option and then later

      change your ONID password, you -must- use the Keychain Access app

      (Applications>Utilities>Keychain Access) and update the saved password.

      Launch the app, enter ‘ceoas-print’ in the search box. Double click on the

      resulting printer name (it will be the name of the first printer you added

      from ceoas-print), click the ‘Show password’ box, enter the password for

      your account on your Mac and click Allow. You will now see your old ONID

      password in the password field and you can change it to your new one.

      Don’t forget to click the Save Changes button when you are finished.

  • All posters should be in .PDF format and poster related questions should be submitted to posters@ceoas.oregonstate.edu.
  • Please submit posters 48 hours in advance.  This is essential to ensure that someone is available to print them in time.

  • Please limit the use of dark or saturated background to help conserve ink.
