How to Add the Printers

Release a Print Job

Mac AirPrint (laptop)

The following instructions will allow you to print most common documents on a Mac (B &W, color, single or double-sided).

To connect to the printer:

  • Go to Apple Menu / System Preferences / Printers & Scanners

  • Click the + (add) button on the left hand side (below the installed printers)

  • Select cloudprint-bw from the list

  • Click Add

  • Repeat the process and select cloudprint-color from the list

The first time you print:

  • A dialog box will pop-up asking for a username and password. Use the first part of your email address (ie. slastname.24)

    • If this is entered incorrectly, your computer will show your print queue with the error "Holding for Authentication"

  • There is a "remember" checkbox on the pop-up. If you do not click this, then you will need to enter your login every time you print.

iOS Devices

When printing from an iPad or iPhone click the share button for the app you're using - then select the printer icon. Select either cloudprint-bw or cloudprint-color. The first time you print from a device to one of the printers, you will be prompted for a username and password. Please enter your Sundial username (in other words, the first part of your email address without the at the end).

Android / Chrome OS / Google Apps Users

The printers are automatically available in Chrome - they will have a green Mobility Print icon in the printers list. When printing for the first time, you will need to authorize it via a popup (login with Google, then Allow to activate it). Please make sure that you are signed into Chrome with your Pomfret School/Google credentials. When selecting the print destination, you will likely need to click "See more..." from the drop-down menu to see all the printers.

If you are printing from other programs, there is something you need to install which can be downloaded here.

It will ask which printers to add (you will need at least Cloudprint-BW) and for a login (your username is studentname.2x rather than your full email address).

Windows (Staff)

Employees with Windows PCs should see CloudPrint-BW and CloudPrint-Color "cloud" printers automatically. If you do not, they can be added with the following directions:

  • Open the Start Menu

  • Type \\print\ into the search box and hit enter

    • A window should open with a list of printers

    • If your web browser opens, try typing \\print\ with the slashes leaning in the other direction

  • Double click on CloudPrint-Color and CloudPrint-BW

Advanced Features on a Mac (Staff)

To use advanced features such as stapling and hole punch use the CloudPrint-BW-LPD and CloudPrint-Color-LPD printers which should already be available on your laptop. When printing; change the dropdown under the program's default selection (different depending on which program/application you are using) and select Xerox Features or Printer Features.
