WiFi Print for Mac
Printing to an RMU printer from your own computer has never been easier. For our Apple OS X users, we have an RMU WiFi Print app that allows you to choose the printers that you want to install and managed previously installed printers.
RMU WiFi Print for Mac 3.x requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard or higher.

Before installing any printers with RMU WiFi Print for Mac 3.x, RMU IT recommends removing any existing RMU printers installed with previous versions of the application.

  1. Open System Preferences located in /Applications
  2. Select Print and Fax (or Print and Scan, depending on your OS version)
  3. Select any previously installed RMU printers and click the (-) button to remove them

Printing to a Printer

When printing to RMU's WiFi printers, you will be asked to enter your RMU user ID (and occasionally a job name). After entering both pieces of information, press Print to print your job. You will need to release the job at the print station.


Automatic Updates

The second time you open RMU WiFi Print for Mac 3.x, it will ask you if you'd like it to automatically check for updates. Select "Check Automatically" if you'd like the application to automatically check for updates on every launch. If you'd like to check for updates manually (instructions below), then choose "Don't Check".

Checking for updates manually

To check for updates manually, select "Check for updates..." under the RMU WiFi Print menu in the menubar.



Updating when there is an update available

If your version is not up to date, you will see a message like the one shown below. You will be able to install the new version by clicking "Install Update". You can postpone the update by selecting "Remind Me Later". RMU IT does not recommend skipping a version.
