These instructions are meant for employees only.

Follow these steps add a new printer using the printer's IP address. Often the address is also displayed on the screen of the printer, for example: 10.162.40.10. Some printers also have the IP address labeled on the printer itself.

You must be attached to a campus wired network, or the Xavier campus wireless network "xavierwireless" to communicate with campus printers.

  2. Click the Printers & Scanners preference pane.


     
  3. On the left side of the Printers & Scanners window you will see a list of your current printers. Click “+” to start adding the printer.


     
  4. When the Add Printer window appears, click the IP icon in the toolbar.

  5. Fill out the fields as follows:


     
    • Protocol = HP Jetdirect – Socket
    • Address = the IP address of the printer
    • Queue = leave blank
    • Name = any name that you would like to give this printer
    • Location = any location description you wish to add
    • Print Using = leave the defaults
  6. Click the Add button. You will see a brief progress window as the printer is being set up. When done, you will be returned to the Printers & Scanners window.
  7. Confirm your printer is now listed in the Printers view on the left side. You can close the window once this is confirmed.
