Upon the first print job sent to the printer you will be required to click on the printer icon located in the dock, and 'resume' the print job. Upon resume you will be asked for your MCLANET User ID and password. Enter in this information and click the checkbox that allows the credentials to be saved. This will ensure you no longer have to enter this information for future print jobs.
