  4. Click the plus icon (+) to open the Printer Browser.
  5. In the printer configuration dialog box, enter the following settings:
    • Click on the IP button on the toolbar - the third from left.
    • In the Address field, type in the printers host name or IP address, ie wyeth.dartmouth.edu
    • In the Protocol drop-down list, leave it as Line Printer Daemon - LPD.
    • In the Queue field, leave blank.
    • In the Name field, type a name for the printer. (ie. Wyeth Konica)
    • In the Location field, type the location of the printer. (Optional)
    • In the Use: drop-down list, choose Select Printer Software... Then use the search field to find and select the closest printer model (ie "Konica Minolta C364e ").
    • Click Add. Your printer will appear in the Printers & Scanners dialog box.
  6. If additional configuration dialog boxes come up, you may want to check the Duplex or Duplex Unit checkbox (if you plan to use double-sided printing). You can safely leave the other options at the default settings.
