    Mr. Jobe, Director of Technology:
    Adding District Printers to Your Personal Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" Laptop

    Do this once for each printer you are adding to your Mac OS X 10.7.x Lion laptop. Note that it works best if you are connected to the school network (wired or wirelessly) when working through this procedure. If you are not connected to the school network I would expect difficulties.

    - click the Apple in the far upper left corner of the screen
    - select SYSTEM PREFERENCES
    - click PRINT & SCAN
    - if the padlock in the lower left of the PRINT & SCAN control panel is locked you should click it and enter your username/password to unlock it
    - click the + button under the PRINTERS list on the left of the PRINT & SCAN window
    - clicking the + will show a short menu of printers, but due to the fact that they are listed by model number you don't know which is which. In a home or small office where there might only be one printer this is fine, but we have many (aprox. 25 printers in each school) so this isn't too handy. Choose the ADD OTHER PRINTER OR SCANNER option from the top of the menu.
    - an ADD PRINTER window will appear. At the top of the window click the IP icon to the right of DEFAULT and FAX.
    - next to PROTOCOL pull down the menu and choose HP JETDIRECT
    - to the right of ADDRESS type the Fully Qualified Domain Name of the printer you would like to add

    - do not type anything in the field to the right of QUEUE

    - your Mac will copy the FQDN you have entered to the right of NAME. You can leave this as is or provide an alternate name.

    - you can type in a room number or location descriptor in the field to the right of LOCATION if you choose (optional)

    - Your Mac will try to automatically select the right printer software. The driver will be shown to the right of PRINT USING. If your Mac can't find the right software it will select a generic print driver or ask you to select from a list. Use a driver that matches the model numbers listed above if possible. The generic postscript driver seems to work fine with the HP Laserjet 4015, but the HP Color LaserJet is a bit pickier. If you can not find a usable driver you should cancel printer setup, run Software Update, and then try adding the printer again (Mac printer drivers are supplied by Apple through Software Update).

    - Once a driver has been selected click the ADD button.
    - The printer will show up in the printers list on the PRINT & SCAN control panel.
    - click the PADLOCK so that it goes to locked state. This will disallow random or unintentional changes to your control panels.
