Installation Instructions:

STEP 1 – Install iPrint Client:

STEP 2 – Install PaperCut Software:

STEP 3 – Install Printer(s):

After installing the iPrint client and PaperCut software, you should be able to install supported campus printers. Once installed, you will be able to use the printer to print documents from your own laptop.

You will need your username and password to set up the printer(s) on your laptop. If you have forgotten your password and have set up your security questions, you will need to reset it before proceeding. Go to the Purdue North Central home page at: www.pnc.edu, Click on myPNC Portal logo and under PNC Password Management, select Student Change Password Button.

  • MAC users: Access this listing of printers to install. IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not follow the PC Window users “Install Printer” instructions below as the printers will not load. Also, Color printing (“TECH 265Color” printer) in T265 is unavailable for MAC users.
  • PC Windows users: Note: When using Internet Explorer, to easily find “Run as Administrator”: 1. Right click on the Internet Explorer (IE) icon 2. When you find IE, right click again and Run as Administrator will be an option to select. To install a printer, first select the building where the printer is located. Available printers will change depending on which building is selected. Once you have chosen a building, select the desired printer, and then select the “Install Printer” button to begin the installation.

Wireless printing will still use your allotted units for printing and will function in the same manner as the computers in the labs.

The installed printer will be defaulted to single-sided printing. If you are interested in setting up duplex printing for the installed printer, select the devices and printers option in your Start menu and under “printing preferences” under finishing, choose 2-sided printing. Each computer will have different setting options so check your computer’s printing preferences for the duplex option.

You will need to select a printer that you will be in closest proximity. If you have selected a printer in error and proceed to request reimbursement of print units, this will be handled on a case by case basis. Units will not be refunded due to user error. Units will only be refunded if a printer has malfunctioned or due to printer downtime.

STEP 4: Installation Complete

Once the download process is complete, you will be able to print wirelessly at the PNC Westville campus and Porter County (PPC) campus. You will only need to perform this download process once. Printing wirelessly from your laptop will have the same look and feel as if you are printing directly from a lab computer.
