Client Installation

Windows

Double-click the installer to launch it, approving the request for administrative permissions when prompted.

On the first screen click the Install button to begin. 
First screen from the Windows installer, with the Install button selected.

When the installation completes, as indicated by the “Installation finished successfully message”, click the Finish button to close the installer.
Final screen from the Windows installer, showing a successful installation.

If you receive a firewall prompt to allow “Pharos Com Task Master” to accept incoming connections, allow the connection.

You may now print to the CNU Print Anywhere system any time that you are connected to CNU’s wireless network.  When you print a document to the printers added by the installer, you will be prompted to enter your CNU ID number so that only you will be able to release your document at the corresponding printer release station.

The Windows print queues are preconfigured with specific drivers, so that jobs sent to the “CNU_PrintAnywhere_BW” queue will always be rendered in gray scale.  Altering or changing the driver on this queue may cause jobs to be charged based upon their actual contents (i.e. if color is present, color costs will be charged accordingly).



MacOS

Download the appropriate print drivers for your version of MacOS.
Screenshot of driver download page

You can download the latest driver from http://i.cnu.edu/printanywheredriver.  Select your version of MacOS, and download the latest Letter driver file (not A4).

After downloading, double-click the zip file to automatically extract it in your Downloads folder.

Locate and run the installer file, “C759_C658_C368_C287_C3851.pkg”, under your Downloads folder: Downloads > C759_C658_C368_C287_C3851_Series_v11.6.0_Letter. You will not need to customize any options.  Simply click the Continue button a few times, & then click Install, providing your administrative password when prompted.

Once installed, you can delete the downloaded zip file and extracted folder from your Downloads.

Mount/open the CNU Print Anywhere Macintosh disk image and run the packaged installer, “CNU-PrintAnywhere.pkg”. Click the Continue button a few times, and then provide your administrative password when prompted.

If you receive a firewall or security prompt to allow “Popup.app” to accept incoming connections, click on the Allow button.

You may now print to the CNU Print Anywhere system any time that you are connected to CNU’s wireless network.  When you print a document to the printers added by the installer, you will be prompted to enter your CNU ID number so that only you will be able to release your document at the corresponding printer release station.


Linux

To use Linux with CNU’s Print Anywhere system, you will need to have the CUPS package installed.  This package comes preinstalled on most Linux distributions.  If you are not able to load the website in Step 1, you may need to install it manually.  These instructions were specifically tested with Ubuntu 20, but should remain the same or be similar in other distributions.

Open your internet browser and type the following into the address bar, http://localhost:631.

Click on the “Administration” menu at the top of the screen.

Click on “Add Printer”. You may be prompted to enter your administrative credentials.

Under “Other Network Printers”, select the option for “LPD/LPR Host or Printer” and click Continue.

In the “Connection” box, type the following, without quotes, and click Continue.

  • CNU PrintAnywhere Color Queue: “lpd://{{CNU_ID}}@pharos.cnu.edu:515/CNU_PrintAnywhere_Color”
  • Replace “{{CNU_ID}}” with your CNU ID number.

Enter a name for the printer. This should match the queue name (e.g. “CNU_PrintAnywhere_Color”).  The Description and Location fields are optional.  Click Continue.

On the “Add Printer” screen, choose to provide a PPD file to identify the printer, and click “Add Printer”.

Screenshot of driver download page
  • For the PrintAnywhere queue, you can download the PPD file from: http://i.cnu.edu/printanywheredriver
  • At the time of writing, the correct PPD file can be found by extracting the downloaded zip file from Konica Minolta. It will be in the extracted “Linux/CUPS1.2/EN” folder and is named “KOC759UX.ppd”.

On the “Set Default Options” screen, change the printer model to “C659”. All other options can be left at their default values.  Click the “Set Default Options” button to finish adding the printer.

You may now print to the CNU Print Anywhere system any time that you are connected to CNU’s wireless network.  When you print a document to the printer that you added above, you will NOT be prompted to enter your CNU ID number.  Because of this, you must enter your exact CNU ID number in Step #5.

Unless you specifically set the color mode on your print job to be in “Black and White” or “Color”, your document will print out exactly as seen on your screen and you will be charged accordingly, regardless of which print queue that you sent your print job to.
