Using PaperCut to print (Mac - minimally managed or personal)

Papercut requirement

You can install Papercut and HuskyPrint on minimally managed or personal devices to print to campus networked printers. 

Please disconnect from the VPN before you print, as it will prevent the Papercut client from prompting for credentials. You can reconnect when you are done printing.

If you are off-campus and connected to the same home network as another Michigan Tech student, staff, or faculty, you will need to sign out after you are done with your print job before the next person prints.

  2. Launch PaperCut MF Client or PCClient from your Applications.
  3. Log in with your Michigan Tech account name and password. Selecting Remember my identity will remember your PaperCut login on your computer

  2. PaperCut will prompt for your credentials again.
