Printing While Visting MBARI

Visitors to MBARI may use "LPR printing" to print to MBARI network printers. Step-by-step setup instructions for Windows and Mac clients are available. For those familiar with setting up LPR printing, here is a brief synopsis of the information you need:

  • Printer or host name - thunder.shore.mbari.org (the MBARI print server)

  • Queue name - the MBARI-assigned name of the desired printer (found on a label on the physical printer itself, or on the thunder web site.) [Note: Links to thunder are not accessible outside MBARI.]

  • Printer model - found on the physical printer itself, or the thunder web site.)

  • Printer driver - included in most newer operating systems, or downloadable from HP
