Install the client

Depending upon your browser, you will get the option to run or save the file. Follow the steps below for whichever you choose. File is called “clientlauncher.exe.”
Mac users may need to unzip the file before doing this if your system does not do it automatically when you open the file.

Run the file

If you get any security warnings, click on “run.”
It will open a minimized box for the LPT:One Print Client.
While this window is open and running, you will be able to print from any application.

Save the File

If you get any security warnings, save the file. Keep track of where you save it.
Go to where you saved the file and run “clientlauncher.exe.”

Print

You must be connected to the wireless network and running the print client before you can print to our network.

Once you run the print client it will temporarily make our printer your “default.” The printer(s) will be called something like “Black & White on 192.168.1…” or “Color on 192.168.1…”
A box will appear and prompt you to enter a name. Enter your name and click “OK.”
When you are done printing, go to the client and click “Stop Print Client.”
Go to the designated print station to pay and print out your print job.
