Printing From Your Laptop


Printing as described here only works if you are authenticated by Eduroam. If you are not then print jobs may be silently dropped. Printing works via wired and wireless.

Printer jobs are logged - who printed what and when.

We support 3 methods of printing from laptop client machines:

  • SMB printing (for Windows systems)
  • IPP based printing using CUPS (for MacOS-X and Linux systems)
  • LPD based printing (for traditional UNIX and some Linux systems)

Printing from iOS or Android is not currently supported.

Details for some common systems



We have a web printing service. This should allow you to print from any device on the maths network. Note that only PDFs, Postscript documents and plain text files are currently supported as input.

Printing via a Maths desktop

If you cannot print from the laptop network you may be able to print from a Maths desktop provided that you have an account. This is most likely to be useful to those who are running an unusual version of Linux/Unix on their laptop.
