Connecting a laptop to an EWS printer

There are two options for remote printing, web printing, and network printing.

Remote Web Printing

To print from any laptop or computer, simply go to http://print.ews.illinois.edu. You will then see this logon screen. Use your netID and AD password to log on.

After logging on successfully, you can then click print.

Print Manager Plus - Print or Settings

First of all, click on "Upload New File", and select the file you wish to print.

Step 1 - Upload new file

Then move on to step two, and select your current location, and then the printer you would like to print to from the drop down menu.

Step 2 Choose a printer

If needed, customize your print settings to what you require in the area marked as step 3.

Step 3 - Printing options

When you have everything set up, click "Finish" at the bottom of the page.

Finish

There will then be a new page loaded, where you can confirm the print. When ready, click "Print Now" to actually send the print job to the printer.

You can then print out more items, as you are taken back to the page to upload and set settings. However, you will see that on the top of the page it will say "Your document has been sent to the printer". At this point, if you do not want to print anything else, you are finished.
