Printing


General information

Available Printers:
  • OKI ES7120 (lp3-hep)
  • OKI C5900 (hep-color)
These printers are available through a print server (hep-lp.physics.uoc.gr) featuring the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). In order to use any of these printers, please connect your laptop or desktop computer to the wired network.
