BIS has provided these instructions.   If you print frequently, we recommend installing “Nomad” via Self Service.  This app will authenticate your account for you, and offers the option to sync your laptop login password as well.

If your print job is of the length you don’t mind waiting for it to print, you can also print to Uniflow, and then retrieve your print job at any canon onsite.  This is especially recommended for sensitive print jobs, as it will not print until you arrive and request it.  You will need to register your prox card initially, but once you’ve done that you can simply tap your card, select “Secure Print” and choose the job you with you print.

The Uniflow driver can be installed via Self Service.  Full instructions on using Uniflow can be found here.

If you do not want to use Uniflow, you can add the printer you want via the IPP tab in your printer dialog, using the address printers.anl.gov, LPD protocol, and the queue name being the printer you want.  This method is entirely unsupported, and this information is provided as a workaround for those who want it.  See here for more info.
