Printing from Mac OS X

Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

To configure your Print & Fax preferences in Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.5:

  1. From the Apple menu, select System Preferences... . In System Preferences, from the View menu, select Print & Fax.

  2. Click the + (plus sign) to add a new printer, and in the new window that opens, click the IP icon.

  3. Next to "Protocol:", select the protocol your printer uses. If you're not sure, try the default option.

  4. In the "Address:" field, type the hostname or IP number of the printer (use 10.11.0.100 for the HP1300 - white and grey printer, and 10.11.0.101 for HP2055dn - larger, black and grey printer). As you type, your computer will search for printers with that number. Once you have finished, "Valid and complete address" will appear below the "Address:" field.

  5. To print to a specific queue, type its name in the "Queue:" field.

  6. Give the printer a descriptive name and location in the appropriate fields. Your Mac may guess what your printer is automatically, but if it doesn't, from the pull-down list beside "Print Using:", select Select a driver to use... and then your network printer's model or series. If your printer is not on the list, contact its manufacturer and see if drivers are available for it.

  7. Click Add. An "Installable Options" menu will appear. You may make adjustments here, and then click Continue.

  8. When your printer is installed, it should appear in the Print & Fax window. To select a default printer if you have more than one installed, choose a printer from the list in the menu next to "Default Printer:".

Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)

To configure the Printer Setup Utility for Mac OS X 10.4:

  1. In the Applications folder, go to the Utilities subfolder and open the Printer Setup Utility.

  2. From the Printer List that appears, click Add.

  3. In the sheet that appears, from the menu at the top, select IP Printer.

  4. Next to "Protocol:", select the protocol your printer uses. If you're not sure, try the default option.

  5. In the "Address:" field, type the hostname or IP number of the printer (use 10.11.0.100 for the HP1300 - white and grey printer, and 10.11.0.101 for HP2055dn - larger, black and grey printer).  As you type, your computer will search for printers with that number. Once you have finished, "Valid and complete address" will appear below the "Address:" field.

  6. To print to a specific queue, type its name in the "Queue:" field.

  7. Click Add to continue. You will be prompted to enter additional options for the printer, but you can leave the settings as they are and click Continue. The printer's port number will then appear in your Printer List.
