Group Printers: Mac OS X

Mac OS X machines print using the Linux CUPS print server. The state of the print queues can be viewed here:

Printers can be installed as follows:

  1. Open the Print & Fax window from System Preferences.
  2. Select add new printer (the + sign towards the bottom left).

  3. Configure the new printer:

    • Protocol: Internet Printing Protocol - IPP
    • Address: ppecups.physics.gla.ac.uk
    • Queue: /printers/<PRINTER NAME>
    • Name: <PRINTER NAME>

  4. A final window will then let you customise the printer configuration, e.g. by setting whether it has a duplexer installed.
