Instructions for installing College of Design WolfPrint printers on your own computer running Windows 7 Professional. Windows 10 Professional will look a little different, but the functions are the same.
NOTE: If you have printers installed from previous years on your computer, you should remove them before proceeding with these instructions. Simply right-click on the printer’s icon and select “Delete.”
There are three College of Design print servers, each with different printers. Printers are distributed among these servers. The addresses for each server and the printers available on each server are:
Click on your Windows button (known as the Start button in previous Windows versions) and then click on Computer. In the window’s address bar, type the address of the print server as shown below, with \\ before the server name.
You will next be asked to log in to each server. Log in with your Unity ID and password. Be sure to put WOLFTECH in front of your Unity ID, as shown below. For example, if your Unity ID was joewolf, you would log in with WOLFTECH\joewolf.
You will then be presented with a list of printers available for installation on the server. Right-click on each printer you want to install and click Connect… as shown below.
When prompted to allow the printer driver to install, click Install driver as shown below.
Allow the installation process to complete and do not cancel the process. Printer installation can take up to two minutes depending on network usage.
The printer will now be listed under Device and Printers in the Start/Windows menu and in the Print dialog for different applications.
Repeat this process for each printer you need to add.
The College of Design uses the WolfPrint system for its public printers. WolfPrint uses money from each user’s AllCampus (WolfPack One) account. For more information and to add money go to go.ncsu.edu/print.
In order for your print job to process correctly, you MUST authorize your print job through the WolfPrint PCClient software OR through go.ncsu.edu/wolfprint on the same computer before your job will print. See Authorizing Print Jobs In WolfPrint for more information.
