Fill in “Printer Address” with Psyprint.psy.uconn.edu.

“Queue” should be completed with the name of the printer you will print to. It should be Printerxxx (xxx is the room where the printer is located). Printer190C is shown throughout this document.

Under “Name”, enter the display name of the printer you wish to print to. It should be “Printer Xxx”. In this example case, it would be Printer 190C.

(4B) Under “Use”, Point and Click on “Select Printer Software”. It will almost always be an HP. You must select the model name for the printer being installed. In the case of the Printer in Bous 190C, the printer “HP LaserJet 600 M601 M602 M603” should be chosen. If you do not see the correct model, the latest HP print drivers are available at the following location https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1888?locale=en_US. See below for the model associated with each of the printers.

For printer options click on the “Configure” button as the printer loads. On the following screen after selecting printer model make sure that “Optional Tray 3” has “500-Sheet Input Tray” selected and that the “Duplex Unit” is also checked. You may need to push the scroll bar up (at right) in order to see all the options.

We maintain many network printers. The ones listed below are available for use by different populations, so PLEASE note the group to which you belong and do NOT print to any others.


Doing so would certainly risk the patience of specific faculty and the administration and could result in loss of network privaleges.

Please do NOT– ever select “Share this printer on the network”. It is a good practice to print a test page to the printer at this time. If you are unable to print create a work order.
