Printer Installation for Windows XP/7 Users outside of the FHI Domain "HABER"

Some hints for self administrated computers and laptops:

  1. Check the entry for the DNS suffix and set it to rz-berlin.mpg.de
  2. Check your name resolution of the DNS server e.g. ping adprint (DNS server IP-address: 141.14.128.1)
  3. Disable firewalls.

All systems outside of the active directory domain "HABER" must fist authenticate with the print-server "adprint" with their valid fhi username and password. For that you have to map a network drive from the printserver "adprint".

''Open the "Computer" window and choose "map a network drive"
Select a drive letter and insert in the Folder textfield \\adprint.rz-berlin.mpg.de\Access''. Also mark "Reconect at logon: and "Connect using different credentials". Now click "Finish"
''Insert here your valid FHI Username with the correct domain"haber\username" suffix!Click ok to map the network drive"
''The network-drive "access" from adprint should now be appear in your "Computer" view"
''You can now use the normal guides for Windows 7 or XP Systems to install an printer"

Note for Guests without a fhi account:

Please contact the it-responsible person in your department (or secretary) to get an fhi account or (of you have a short stay) you can get an temporary printing account from PP&B.

Using "Canon Secure Printing" on the Canon Department Printers (Advance 5240)

Secured printing saves a print job in the Canon Printer under an assigned PIN (password) and outputs it later only when the correct PIN (password) is entered at the Canon Printer. This function is useful when printing a confidential document.

When you're using the pp&b print server "ADPRINT" you can use this function on any canon advance C5240i department printer.

- This works not when printing on the other pp&b print servers like CUPS or without a valid print driver !

Works on:

- PP&B Workstations
- Self-administrated workstations Windoows 7 or OSX 10.9.x and above (with a valid print driver) (please see the other print guides for installation help)
- Connected via Ethernet (valid IP-Address 141.14.x.x Network or from WIFI EDUROAM) (please see the other print guides for installation help)
