  2. From the list of printers, select your web printer (the name may vary, here are some examples: \\home\webprint, \\home\WU network printer, webprint, home.willamette.edu...) and click Print or OK.
  3. NOTE: Nothing appears to happen. This is normal. If everything is working correctly your jobs have been sent to the Network Print Queue.
  4. Your Next Step is to log into the webprint site and Print your jobs. (hint, instructions below).

Step 2. Printing Jobs Stored in the Network Print Queue
