Printing From Laptop

The laptop device will need to be connected to a docking station in order to connect to the printer’s network. The docking stations have a USB-C type wire to connect to the laptop. Without it, an ethernet cable can be used instead by connecting it into the laptop’s port. If your laptop does not have an ethernet port, please contact so we can provide an adapter for the devices or set it up on site.

From Desktop Workstation

All desktop workstations should be able to freely print. If you are unable to print from one workstation, please try printing from a different printer and inform IRLE IT of the non-working station.
