All shared network printers in the department have moved to the restricted service network in order protect them from printer attacks from inside the department.   What this means is direct connection to the printers are denied from inside the department or over the CS VPN.  All shared network printer connections must be mapped through the print server, printhost.cs.brown.edu.  Tstaff managed systems will not notice any side effect from this move.  Users connecting from their laptop will need to remap their network printer connections to use printhost.   See the following web page for instruction on how to connect to the printers through printhost:

During this printer migration, all user printers were moved to the self managed network.  Personal print queues on the print server will be removed once users remap their personal printer connections to a direct connection.
