Now send a test print to the printer.  If you have setup the printer correctly on your computer, from the list of awaiting print jobs on the printer, you should find your User ID.  You should be able to print or delete the job on the printer by entering your PIN number.

Note: Print jobs will remain on the printer for a maximum of 1 hour before being purged.
