There are two options for adding printers: secured queue-printing, or unsecured direct-printing. Secured printing sends your job to a follow me queue which allows your walk up to Konica on campus authenticate and release your job.  Unsecured will avoid the authentication piece but will send the job immediately to the Konica of your choice.

Secured queue-printing:

Unsecured direct-printing:

1) The name of the queue is PrintFX-Stu, thus the URL needs to be: smb://xprinters/Print-Stu
2) Rewrite the name in the name box: Print-Stu

4) Click on the Use drop down menu followed by Select Printer Software
1) For direct printing, the actual name of the printer is required. A list of printer names can be seen by clicking here, or they can be seen on the green labels that are on the units themselves. Thus, the URL Field will be: smb://xprinters/Name of Printer Here
