A note about printing to campus printers on student laptops:

If a student employee has a need to print from their assigned (eStout) laptop, the above instructions will work, but because the laptops are not attached to the UW-Stout domain, the printer will need to be deleted and re-added each time the laptop disconnects from the campus network, including when the laptop is shut down or rebooted.
