We have a Brother MFC-L2740DW printer and scanner. You can access it through IP address

Please don't run big jobs like printing out user manuals, etc. Printing an occasional publication of up to 20 pages is okay. Please use duplex printing to save paper.

Please do not use any other printers in the building without permission by the owner.

Scanning is tough to set up, but printing is easy.
