Printing from abacus.nodak.edu using Putty

Printing from abacus uses the pcprint command in the following format:
pcprint <filename>

e.g. pcprint program1.lst

In order to use the pcprint command when using Putty to connect to abacus.nodak.edu, you will need to change your configuration as follows:

Start Putty, select abacus from the saved sessions area and click Load.

Click "Terminal" within the category listing.

Remote-Controlled Printing section shows "None (printing disabled)", click the down arrow to list the printers installed on your computer.

Choose the appropriate printer from the list.

Click the Session category and click "Save."

 

Connect to Putty as usual and the pcprint command should now work.
