Printing

You must be on a UCSD network (ethernet, wireless, or VPN) before configuring our printers.

Printers are already configured on most SCCN desktops and workstations. If they are not, please contact the SCCN system administrator. If you have administrator privileges on your own desktops or personal devices, the information below is for you.

The SCCN printers are named

  • copying
  • coloring

The INC printers are named

  • inc-workcentre
  • inccolor

If you also need to install the INC printers, see the INC Handbook.

Be sure you have access to the network share in which the drivers are located before you begin the installation..

Open a file browser. In Windows, this is called File Explorer. On Mac, you need to use the Go menu to connect to the smb server.

Windows: \\sccn.ucsd.edu\software\Printing

Macintosh: smb://sccn.ucsd.edu/software/Printing

If prompted, use your SCCN username and password.

Leave the contents of that folder alone for now. Continue with your printer installation below.
