UZH Print Plus - Printer Installation


The installation of the printer on the personal computer requires an active connection to the UZH network:

  • At home, a VPN connection must first be established for this.
    Remote Access-VPN
  • At the university, simply connect the computer to the WLAN UZH.

The personal UZH access data (short name and password) are required for the installation of the PrintPlus printer. The administration of the password is done as usual via Identity Management. The service used for PrintPlus is called Active Directory (AD).



Requirement: A current Microsoft supported Windows 10 version must be used.

1. Start run

Type "run" in the search field of the Start menu (for German operating systems: Ausführen) and start the program.

(Shortcut: Press [Windows]-[R] on your keyboard)

2. Enter printer server

In the "Open" window, enter the PrintPlus server and click OK:

Afterwards the connection to the server is established. It may take a few minutes until the login window appears.

NOTE for managed Windows clients in the UZH\ domain:
For these workstations the login process is carried out automatically.

3. Login

Once the connection to the print server is established, a login window appears. Use the personal UZH short name and AD password for login. It is possible that a driver is automatically installed after login.
Afterwards the printer is ready for operation.

Important: Use "UZH\" before the short name to define the domain.

If the system suggests a user name that is not accepted, the new user (UZH\short name) can be entered under Further Options > Use other account.
