Mac Printing Alternate Method

 Mac instructions (alternate)

  • First, open the Apple menu and select "System Preferences."
  • Second, select "Printers & Scanners." 
  • Third, click the "+" and select "Add Printer or Scanner."
  • Fourth, hold the control key on the keyboard and click in the empty space in the menu next to the search field until you see a small menu pop up. Choose "customize toolbar" from that menu.
  • Fifth, click and drag the "advanced" sprocket icon onto the menu and then click "Done."
  • Sixth, click the "advanced" sprocket in the menu and wait for a moment for it to load, then set the fields as follows:
    • Type: change to "Windows printer via spoolss"
    • URL: type smb://
    • Name: type whatever you want, we suggest "papercut"
    • Use: set to "Generic PostScript Printer"
    • Click "Add"
  • Seventh, indicate that the printer does have a duplexer
  • Last, try to print something and it will ask for your username and password.  It will autofill the wrong username (firstlast). Make sure you change this to your cc username (usually f_last, ex. j_doe) and then enter your password.
