Network, Printing, Scanning

Network

  • LAN is available in the labs. Find a cable and connect your computer to the nearest switch. If you attach other networking equipment, e.g. switches, inform Daniel B. Fasnacht.
  • WLAN is available in the lab rooms: SSID: neuron, no encryption or password...
  • There is a transparent HTTP proxy running. Stuff downloaded once should come from the local cache the next time. No configuration is necessary as all traffic is redirected through the proxy...

Printer

  • the printer is attached to the network and reachable via LAN and WLAN:
    • Model: Oki B410
    • The printer IP is: 10.171.32.10
    • Port: 9100 (HP Jet-Direct)

Installation under Linux

Let your printer software find the printer or enter it's IP.

When you have to select a driver, go to the Generic section (not Oki), and select a generic PCL 5e driver.

  • Make it the default printer and do not share it and you should be done.
