ISA are launching Internet printing for the FollowMe system to allow you to print from your own laptop or home computer. This will operate if you are on campus, in residences or even while working from a café in town!
Once installed you use it exactly the same as the system on Campus. Send your print jobs to iFM_Mono and swipe your uniCARD on any of the printers on campus to collect your printing. This system is currently on trial and therefore we are only providing Mono printing. It is intended that colour printing will be released once the system is proven. Currently it is only possible to use this service with Microsoft Windows but we are planning to further develop this to work with the Apple Mac operating system. It should operate with both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of MS Windows XP and newer. As this is a trial system we would appreciate you reporting any problems encountered and any general feedback on the service to the IT Helpdesk.
To install the Internet FollowMe Mono (iFM_Mono) or FollowMe Colour (iFM_Colour) printers on your computer you will need to ensure you are connected to the internet. Once this is established you just need to click the link below and follow the on-screen instructions. Please note you must use MS Internet Explorer to open the following link and install the printer.
