Adding and Removing Printers - Apple Mac OS X

To Add a Printer on an HAO Mac: First connect to the internal ethernet network or UCAR VPN CLIENTS wifi and Cisco VPN, then:

  1. System Preferences> Printers and Scanners.
  2. Click the small "+" sign to Add a printer.
  3. Select globe icon for "IP".
  4. Protocol = Line Printer Daemon - LPD.
  5. Address = printername.hao.ucar.edu (where printername is hao-2151, hao3ec, etc).
  6. Hit tab key, and it should fill in the model. Click Add.
  7. In the next window, select the Duplex check box, and click OK. The new printer should appear in your list.

If you are trying to add a printer over the UCAR Internal wifi network, you may not be able to automatically select the correct driver for the printer (lists as "Generic"). If this happens, try turning off wifi, and connecting to the internal ethernet instead (blue cable), then add the printer.

To add the driver for the Xerox 7835i printer in room CG1-3123, follow the usual “add printer” instructions of choosing IPP then LPD, and entering the fully-qualified address of haoxerox-3123.hao.ucar.edu. Do not add the printer via Bonjour, as your jobs will not print. Open this link to access the latest Xerox 7835 driver for MacOS 10.10–10.12.

To Delete a Printer:

  1. System Preferences> Printers and Scanners.
  2. Select/highlight the printer you would like to remove.
  3. Click the minus "–" sign to delete printer.
