Péage is the print/scan/copy system of the Radboud University for staff and students. General information can be found on the Péage website.

As of August, 2016, the C&CZ printbudget system is only used for a few printers.

On this page, C&CZ provides information specific for staff and students of FNWI.


  • MFP: multifunctional printer (that can print, copy and scan)

Known problems

  • Pincode for copying and scanning does not function anymore: You need a u/s/e/f-number to logon to the MFP for printing, copying or scanning.
  • Printer offline: Choose \\payprint01 or \\payprint02 instead of \\payprint03
  • Remote Downlevel Document: When printing from Linux, the MFP shows "Remote Downlevel Document" instead of the name of the printed file.

Differences with the C&CZ print system

What Who Difference
Follow-me everybody Printjobs are held in a queue for 12 or 48 hours. During that time you can select them at the MFP to be printed at that moment.
Scan-to-me everybody Typing the email address is no longer necessary, since one is logged in on the MFP. Therefore the email address is known.
Secure printing everybody Because you have to login at the MFP to print a job, there is no real possibility of a data leak due to sensitive output laying around printers.
No banner pages everybody Because you have to login at the MFP to print a job, there is no need to separate jobs with banner pages.
Accounts/authentication everybody With RU account (u/s/f/e-number) and PIN code (or RU password). Or with PIN-code first and then campus card. The Library of Science services guest accounts and guest cards.
Copying staff Copying is also charged to the account ("kostenplaats") of the department. If you work for several departments, the costs are divided between these accounts.
students Because copying is charged to the Péage account, students can make copies on all Péage MFP's. On C&CZ-managed MFP's students had to scan and print to get the same result.
student organisations These can request a separate pass.
Only 1 budget group everybody Staff costs are charged to their departmental charge account(s) ("kostenplaats(en)"). Students and guests must have sufficient Péage budget on their RU-account.
Topping up budget staff Not necessary anymore. Charged to departmental budget ("kostenplaats") each month, just like a credit card.
students Preferably with iDeal.
guests At the Library of Science.

Printing with Péage

User groups

Péage recognizes three user groups, each should be using a dedicated printserver and printqueue:

printserver printqueue UNC - Windows style URI - IPP style
students payprint01.ru.nl RU-Print \\payprint01.ru.nl\RU-Print smb://payprint01.ru.nl/RU-Print
RU services employees payprint02.ru.nl RU-Print02 \\payprint02.ru.nl\RU-Print02 smb://payprint02.ru.nl/RU-Print02
Faculty employees payprint03.ru.nl RU-Print03 \\payprint03.ru.nl\RU-Print03 smb://payprint03.ru.nl/RU-Print03

Login with your RU-account (ru.nl\u1234567) and RU-password.
Select if desired Remember this password in my keychain, so your RU-account and RU-password will be remembered, authentication for print jobs is no more needed.
Clicking OK will, after a second (depending on the size of your print job), remove the print job from the queue. The job is then received by the print server and remains
in its print queue for final printing.

Printing with Péage on a Linux machine

You need your RU-account (u/f/e/s-number and RU-password) to send a print job to the printer.
Important: Choose the correct server and queue, see User groups.

Below a short description how to install the printer on Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr). This procedure might work for other recent Linux systems using the Gnome Desktop. It may be necessary to first install the smbclient package using your package manager.

Step 1
If you are using a C&CZ managed Linux computer, the printer is already installed. Go to step 6.
Via System Settings visit Printers. Or start the tool system-config-printer tool from the commandline with the command: system-config-printer
Step 2
Click above the field with printers on the Add button.
There might appear a window Authenticate, provide the requested root password.
Step 3
A window New Printer emerges, select Network Printer and then Windows Printer via SAMBA.
On the right side you can provide required data:
SMB Printer: smb://payprint03.ru.nl/RU-Print03
Authentication: Prompt user if authentication is required
Click on Forward.
Step 4
In the next window you have to choose a driver: Select Provide PPD file.
Also select the Peage.ppd (Postscript Printer Description) file, which has to be downloaded first via right-clicking the link.
Click on Forward. You should see a window Installable Options with settings you can change. If using the correct PPD file no adaptations are needed.
Click on Forward.
Step 5
Provide the requested data:
Printer Name: RU-Print03
Description: KONICA MINOLTA C754SeriesPS/P
Location: Virtual printqueue / available at all Peage KM printers
Click on Apply.
There might appear a window Authenticate
At Username type first: the domain prefix ru\, directly followed by your u/s/e/f-number, e.g. ru\u123456, and at Password your RU-password.
Select Cancel at the question Would you like to print a test page?.
Step 6
Your printer has been installed and is ready to use.
As soon as you use the printer, a window will pop up showing the message Authentication is required to print ... and also asking for your credentials. It can happen that your print job gets paused requesting authentication. In that case open the print queue and right click on your print job. In the upcoming context menu select the authenticate option. It might be a good idea to keep the print queue applet open and to check for print jobs requesting authentication.
At Username type first: the domain prefix ru\, directly followed by your u/s/e/f-number, e.g. ru\u123456, and at Password your RU-password.
Credentials are stored in the gnome-keyring which can be viewed or modified with the tool seahorse. Before using seahorse you probably need to install it first with your package manager.

History of Project Péage

In June 2011 a (second) Proof of Concept project was successfully executed at several faculties including FNWI.

As of July 2011 a Péage multifunctional is available at the Faculty of Science in the Huygens building. The multifunctional printer is located near the vending machines in the cafetaria. As of February 13, 2012, students of the Faculty of Science can use Péage, including the Péage MFP in the Huygens building.

Half 2016, a test of Péage is carried out for students and staff. All KM MFP's are moved gradually from the C&CZ printsystem to Péage. As of 2016-08-23 all publicly available Konica Minolta printers within the FNWI buildings have been migrated to Péage.

Printers listed below have not yet been removed from the C&CZ print system (not yet been migrated to Péage). Please remove printers that are no longer part of the C&CZ print system from your computer.
