Installing the Ricoh Printing on Personal Windows Computers
Printing to the Managed Student Printing Service from personal devices is currently available for computers running Windows 2000, Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
Although printing to the service is available on all the DIT's Wireless Networks, the actual installation of the required drivers and "pop-up" printing port on non-DIT computers is only possible if the devices are first connected to either the wired network, or to the DITLan or EDUROAM wireless networks. This is due to firewall restrictions on the other networks.
