  • Printing from private notebooks to the institutes printer is only possible (UPP is fine) via LAN (=cable) and not via WLAN. Search for a LAN Port with a yellow point.

  • Enable: 'show remote printers'
  • Hint: after the first time activating your Notebook at IMATH, it's possible that you have to wait up to 15 minutes before the printers appear. If you deactivate/activate your network or if your reboot your machine, the printer will be displayed immediately.
  • The printers at UZH advertise their presence using the mDNS protocol, so, in order to see the printers on the network, you must have an mDNS client installed and configured. This can be accomplished, on most systems, by installing the 'nss-mdns' module, and adding 'mdns' or 'mdns_minimal' to the 'hosts' line in '/etc/nsswitch.conf'. Note that, in most distributions, nss-mdns requires the 'avahi-daemon' to be installed and running.
  • UZH Print Plus


  • Printing is possible via LAN or WLAN as long as it is UZH internal.
