Printing from MAC

Some of the public network printers at DESY can be reached via the guest network.

List of Desy Guest Network Printers

The printers that can be reached from the guest network should have an appropriate sticker on the engine itself, so look out for a marked printer in your building. Don't expect your proper user name on the banner page, look out for your hostname and the user name 'guest' or 'nobody' !

For conferences use these printers:

  • conferencec
  • conferencet (For printing on foils)
  • conference1
  • conference2
