Connect To Network Printers - Windows
To use a networked departmental printer you need to obtain its exact network print queue name. Look for a sticker on the printer showing this information. Co-workers and department coordinators may also be able to provide you with the needed name(s).
Once you have obtained the printer queue name(s), simply follow the instructions below on your College-owned computer to connect to desired printers, set a default printer that you use most often, or removed unused printers.
Installing the MiddColor and MiddBW Queues
The queues you will use are named MiddColorand MiddBWand are on the Walnut and Seaotter servers.
- Windows users connect by typing:
- For Vermont - type \\walnut\MiddColoror \\walnut\MiddBW in the run box (windows start search menu - magnifying glass in the lower left of your screen) to connect
- For Monterey- type\\seaotter\MiddColorand \\seaotter\MiddBWin the run box (windows start search menu - magnifying glass in the lower left of your screen) to connect
Commonly Used Print Servers
- Walnut -- Queues for departmental printers
- Papercut -- Queues for public printers

The above steps will not work properly if the computer is a) not bound to the middlebury.edu domain (only should apply to college-owned computers) or b) is not logged in with a network account with printing privileges.
