This document contains the procedures by which you can check the queue of any RCS printer.
Currently, you need to connect to the RCS UNIX system in order to check the print queues of the various networked printers. To make the connection, double-click the SecureCRT icon to start a secure session to one of the remote UNIX hosts. After you start SecureCRT, a Connect window will appear.
- Select a hostname from the list and click OK.
- You will then be prompted for your RCS userID and password.
Once you are connected, enter the command lpq at the UNIX prompt, using the -P option to specify the name of the printer you used. For example, if you sent your job to vclw, the double-sided printer in the VCC Print Room, the command would be:
3. When you have finished your remote session, type exit and then close the SecureCRT window.
If you want to install SecureCRT, then check out the Software Installation section.
Please note that although your job will no longer be listed when the printer has received the data about your print job, your job still needs to print. Be patient and wait at least an hour for the VCC Operations staff to bring your job up to the racks along side the VCC South lab.
