    I'm trying to figure out how to print a poster off of a school printer, an Epson 7880, that is on a server (msserver?) I'm not sure how to access the printer through the computer. There are two drives on the computer where photos are placed prior to printing, an s: drive and an n: drive. I know I need to put my document into one of these drives, but after that I'm lost, because when I click 'Print' the epson doesn't come up. I'm not sure how to go about sending it to the printer.

    Before you say "ask your school for help", here's why I can't. I don't want to bore you with details, but the long and short of it is many students (who know how to use the equipment) print things all the time, but it's impossible if you don't know how--the IT guys don't deal with this particular printer, it's one girl from the Art Department. She's like this machine's gatekeeper and only allows Art majors to use it or those with a teacher's permission. The poster's for my own use and I'm not an Art major (I can't lie, she asks for detailed info lol), so I'm trying to figure out how to do it on my own.

    Can anyone help? Any suggestions for me to try would be appreciated. Thank you!!

    TSG will not help you circumvent the administrators of your school equipment.

    Find a local shop to print your personal art project.
