Note 10.5/10.6:  For this work around, you'll be asked to "login" each time you print something.  Just click "guest" and hit okay.  Unfortunately, until OSX updates their print system to version 1.3.9, this is the only way to print to our printers.

Note 10.7/10.8:
 For this work around, you'll be asked to "login" each time you print something.  It'll give you a choice of Registered User or Apple ID.  Use Registered user and login as "Guest" with no password.

Make sure and test print from within the law school before counting on remote printing!!
