This tutorial is for printer setup for CIS computers running MAC OSx.

Install The Driver

First step in setting up a CIS printer on windows is installing the correct driver from printer list contained on the ?Printer Setup page (parent page).

When installing the printer drivers, if the installation process starts to search for a printer, select continue and skip this part of the process.  For this installation, we need only the printer drivers, the printer will be installed manually.

Install the printer

Open "System Preferences" through the apple menu.

Select the "Printers & Scanners" Icon to open printer settings.



Press "+" to add a printer. If the "+" is grayed out, unlock this menu by clicking on the small lock icon in the bottom left hand corner of the window and then put in your administrative account information.



Go to the "IP" tab.  Under this tab, insure that the Protocol is set to "Line Printer Daemon - LPD", the Address is "printer.cis.rit.edu", and that the Queue and Name are set to the appropriate printer ("guppy" or "sailfish").



The printers will work with the Generic PostScript Printer driver with no difficulties. Now click the "Add" button.  Be sure to check the "Duplex Printing Unit"

Your printer should be ready to use. If you have difficulties after following this wiki, please contact help@cis.rit.edu for assistance.
