From a clean desktop, open the system preferences, then click on the Print and Fax icon to bring up the printing preferences.
From the printer preferences pane, you must click on the lock (if locked) to allow you to add new printers. Then click on the plus symbol under the printer column to begin installing the new printer.
You must gain access to the advanced printer install options by right clicking (or control clicking) on the header blank space next to the "More Printers" button. On the menu that appears, choose "Customize Toolbar"
- Select the Advanced widget and drag it up to the tool bar into an empty space.
- Click Done, and then click the Advanced widget to open the advanced settings and dialogues. (Note: it will take a moment for the new options to load.)
- OSX 10.5 & 10.6 Select "Windows" from the first drop down
- OSX 10.7 & 10.8 Select "Windows printer via spoolss" and update the print driver in the "Use" drop down (the picture below is an older version where it was called "Print Using). DO NOT USE the "Windows" icon on the tool bar, this method is only available via the Advanced button.
Step 2: If advanced options are not there, add them by right-clicking (or control+click) on the gray area next to the icons near the top of the Add window and choose Customize Toolbar..., then drag the advanced icon to the toolbar and click Done.
Step 3: Choose Windows printer via spools (or a similar option; may vary depending on OS version)
Step 4: after "smb://" add law-printserve.ad.wisc.edu/PRINTERNAME, where PRINTERNAME is the name of the printer as shown in the table above
For example, if adding the Remington Center printer it should look like this: smb://law-printserve.ad.wisc.edu/WiFiFJRC
Step 5: Enter your desired name for the printer in the name field
Step 6: Select Genereic PCL driver from the Use: dropdown list and click Add.
Note 10.7/10.8: For this work around, you'll be asked to "login" each time you print something. It'll give you a choice of Registered User or Apple ID. Use Registered user and login as "Guest" with no password.
Make sure and test print from within the law school before counting on remote printing!!
