Central File and Print Services (CFAPS)

Central File and Print Services (CFAPS) is a service available to administrative and academic departments at Ryerson. CFAPS provides:

 


 

Shared Network Printing

Network printing allows multiple computers to print to the same printer(s). Once a network printer has been set up on CFAPS, any number of users can be granted access to print to it.

To use network printing through CFAPS your computer must have at least Windows 7. MAC users can also access CFAPS network printing. Setting up a printer for use by CFAPS requires:

  • a network card for the printer
  • RIN connection for the printer
  • RIN connection for each computer

Once you have been set up for CFAPS on your workstation you can access any network printer in your department for which you have been authorized.

As of October 23, 2016, the CFAPS printer server name will change from TSI-CFAP-03 to admnps-02 .  Printer names will remain the same the only difference will be the server name.  Your default printer may not remain the same after this change.  You may have to re-select the default printer.

Backup Service

Through CFAPS faculty and staff can quickly and easily back-up their data to their personal network folder. This will prevent the accidental loss of data due to hard disk failure or computer theft. The maximum amount of data that staff or faculty can back up is 1 gigabyte (1 GB) on their personal network space. To get personal back-up disk space, your department must have CFAPS in place. 

 


 

Shared Central File Service

Through the Central File service of CFAPS you can store and share commonly accessed files within a shared network environment available to your department or group.  This reduces the need to send large attachments through emails.  Every department can get a Shared Departmental Folder created (size of 2 GB) for accessing common and shared documents.

You can access the Shared Departmental folders by clicking on "My Computer" and selecting the Departmental Shared (S:) drive.  If you can not see this and need to manually connect to a shared or personal CFAPS folder, follow the below instructions.

 


 

Off Campus

CFAPS personal and departmental folders can be access off campus using RU-VPN2.
