Checking the Print Queue
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 telnet 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:
lpq -P vclw
When you have finished your remote session, type logout and then close the SecureCRT window.
If you want to install SecureCRT, click on the Software tab above, and then select Software to Install. There is a $10 charge.
