The Xerox AltaLink devices on campus have an Embedded Web Server. Users can upload document to print to get around the current Microsoft printing services vulnerability. You can print .pdf, .ps, .pcl, .prn, .xps, .jpg, .tif and .txt files directly using the Xerox Embedded Web Server without opening another application or using a print driver on your PC. The files can be stored on a local computer hard drive or network drive.
