How-To

Task: Set up the Follow-Me Printers using PaperCut's Mobility Print on your personal device or computer.

Before you begin

  • If you are on-campus, make sure you are connected to Eduroam (wireless) or Ethernet (wired).
  • If you are off-campus, make sure you are connected to the VPN.

Instructions

Step 1 - Download the Mobility Print client from https://papercut.unh.edu:9164/setup 

The download page attempts to detect your operating system (box 1 in image below). If the operating system is correct, choose the Download button (box 2).

Step 2 - Follow the on-screen installation instructions provided for your operating system.

Step 3 - When the installation is complete, the Follow-Me printers UNH_BW_EMPLOYEE and UNH_COLOR_EMPLOYEE will be available on your device.

Step 4 - You can now print to one of the Follow-Me printers as you normally would print on your device. See detailed instructions for how to print from MacOS or from Windows.

Important: Each time you print, your device will ask you for a username and password. Type your USNH username ONLY, NOT username@usnh.edu (e.g. jbd2519, NOT jbd2519@usnh.edu) and USNH password. Your operating system may have the option to save this information after the first time, to make it easier to print.

Step 5 - After you send your document to one of the Follow-Me printers, you can go to a PaperCut Xerox printer and release your print job using the posted QR code, using the printer control panel (tap-to-release), or through a web browser.

 

Outcome

You have set up the Follow-Me Printers using PaperCut's Mobility Print on your personal device or computer. You are able to print to PaperCut printers on campus.
