Some important things to know

  • If you're not sure how to print from your application please ask for assistance.
  • If you enter the wrong authentication details, MacBook devices do not show any warning message; your job just will not print.
  • If your job doesn’t print, check the Print Queue dialog. If the print job is there and has the message Held for authentication, click the  icon; then re-enter your login details.
