Pullprint are printers equipped with a card reader that authenticates the students’ and employees’ admission cards.

The print queue is called Pullprint and consists of a network of printers. The printout can be obtained from any one of these.

Pullprint is the actual printing part of Safecom; the printing and payment system used at OsloMet.

4.3.1 Printer types
A. MFP

Multi-function printers (MFP) by Ricoh or Sharp; copy, scan and print.

Many MFP printers are equipped with the Pullprint function, i.e. they have card readers that authenticate the users before letting them choose what to do.

5. Checklist in case of errors

Points that you should review in case of printing problems before contacting the IT service desk. In case of errors with a Ricoh printer, contact Ricoh’s service telephone.

5.1 PC without attached printer

All OsloMet's PCs should have Pullprint installed. If you are using an OsloMet PC without Pullprint, you can install it here.

If this doesn’t solve the problem, inform the IT service desk by e-mail: itservicedesk@oslomet.no

5.2 Empty toner

If a printer is out of toner, contact the service telephone of the printer in question, e.g. Ricoh, see Order Toner.

5.3 Out of paper

If a printer is out of paper, contact the administration at your department / unit. This is the department's responsibility.

5.4 Printing large files / several pages

If you need to print several pages, we advice you to test the printer first by printing only the first page. If it comes out fine, you can print the remaining pages.

5.5 Split up large printing jobs

You may also want to divide large printing jobs into several parts. E.g. by first printing pages 1-50, then pages 51-100.

5.6 No access to printer

If you do not have access to the printer on your machine, you must add it again.

If you have recently changed your password, you will not be able to access the printer(s) added to your personal computer (PC / Mac). The message usually reads “Server offline”. In this case you must add the printer again. Go to the printer intallation guides.
