ePrint Server Update

ePrint allows members of the Duke community to print directly to any printer on campus, even remotely, using your computer or the mobile app. An upgrade to the ePrint server last spring requires returning faculty, students, and staff to delete the old client, restart their device, and then reinstall the new client. Contact the OIT Service Desk for assistance.
