Printing from a Macintosh

Here's an illustrated testimonial to configuring a Macintosh OS/X to print to hp_1 in TH123.

  • Select System Prefs -> Hardware -> "Print & Fax"

  • Click on "Set Up Printers...":
    (If the padlock at the lower left is closed, you'll have to click on it first to enter an Administrator's password.)

  • A dialog box pops up entitled "Printer List".
    Click the add icon at the top:

  • Enter the values as shown.

  • Click the "Add" button at the bottom to complete the configuration.

So essentially the Mac will use Internet Protocol to send a network print request using the Unix LPD (Line Printer Daemon) / LPR (Line Printer utility) protocol to th123-13.sfsu.edu (IP address 130.212.16.85). The data will be formatted for a HP Laserjet 4000. This works even from off campus.
