Connecting to Network Printers

Follow these instructions to connect your computer to the ISAW Multi-function Copier/Printer/Scanner machines. There are two in the building; the 4th floor alcove has a black-and-white multi-function device with fax capability, and the 6th floor alcove has a color multi-function device. Both require authenticated printing, using your unique assigned five-digit copier code. You will also need to know the following IP addresses:

4th floor printer-copier:  Lanier MP 5002
6th floor printer-copier:  Lanier MP C5503

Connecting with MacOS

  1. Open System Preferences, and select Print & Fax.
  2. Click the + button.
  3. Select the IP icon.
  4. Enter the IP Address of the printer you want to add in the Address field (see above). After a few seconds, a Lanier driver will be selected automatically. Type a Name for the printer, and then click Add.
  5. If a dialog box pops up asking about installed options, check that the Trays are installed, and that duplex is selected, and continue.
  6. When the printer appears in the list, open a test document to print (a Word document will do). Go to Print... and select the Layout drop-down menu in the Print dialog box. From there, select the Job Log option. Click Enable user code, and enter your 5-digit copier code in the User Code field. Then click the Presets menu, and save these settings as a preset.

Known Problems:
Some applications try to override the System Preferences by using a proprietary Print dialog box. This will kick out any saved Preset settings that you have configured for the shared printers, including your user code. The result will be an "authentication error" at the printer, and it will drop your print job without printing it. The fix is to "Print Using the System Dialog". Look for this option in Chrome, and in Adobe applications such as Photoshop and Acrobat Pro. Contact the IT Office if you need assistance.
