Printer Setup


To print from your personal laptop, follow CUS instructions. Each time you print, you will be prompted for your login and password. Make sure you're using your Reed Kerberos username and password, not your computer's username and password.


I entered my username and password, but the printer queue says "Holding for Authentication".

Your computer might autofill your computer's username. Select the retry arrow. Delete your computer username and replace it with your Reed Kerberos username and password.
