  3. The first time you run the printer setup, you will be prompted to add a printer, click Add, if you have installed a printer before just click the + sign.
  4. Type the hostname of the printer server, i.e. printhost.encs.concordia.ca, in the Printer Address field, and type the name of the printer in the Queue Name field.
  5. Select the model of the printer from the Printer Model pop-up menu, select the Model Name, then click the Add button.
