Web Print Services Explained

By Sharukh Mithani, IT manager, UIT Help Desk

What is Web Print?

Web Print, a printing management service, allows students and employees to print from any web-enabled device through PaperCut MF software. The service allows you to print from any device without having to go through an advanced configuration on the device itself. Web Print can eliminate having to transfer your documents to a UNT lab computer before printing. The software is made by PaperCut Software International Pty. Ltd.

You can identify Web Print-enabled printers by looking for a “Web Print enabled” sign on a UNT printer. A list of the printer locations can be found by logging in with your enterprise user identification, EUID, and password, then selecting Web Print from the menu, then clicking Submit a Job to see the list of the available printer locations.

How to Release your Print Job to go to the Printer

Release Station
Some Web Print-enabled printers have a release station. This means that you will have to log in to a physical device near the printer and release your job before it will print and land in the printer tray.

No-Release Station
Keep in mind that if the printer does not have a release station, your document will be released immediately to the printer. Consider the content of your document and your proximity to the printer before you print the document.

Mobile Release
Some Web Print-enabled printers require mobile release. You must visit the URL located on the printer from a personal device to release your print job.
