Make sure your Apple Mac is connected to the University network.(How do I do that?)

  • Download and install the printer drivers for your version of OS X
  • Click the Apple icon at the top left
  • Select System Preferences

  • Open Printers and Scanners.
  • Click the plus icon (+) under the Printers List.
  • Select the IP tab
  • Enter the details for Address, Protocol, Queue and Name so they match the screenshot below.
  • PLEASE NOTE - the address is lpdprint (lower case L) and not ipdprint
  • In the Use field, choose Select Software
  • Select the driver SAVIN MP C4054 PS and click OK
  • Wait for the printer to finish connecting then click Options & Supplies
  • Click the Options tab
  • Set Option Tray to Tray 3 (LCT)
  • Set Internal Tray 2 to Installed
  • Set Finisher to Finisher SR3240

  • To add the colour queue, repeat the steps above and change the queue name to colour.
  • If you enter the wrong password, you won't be shown a warning message and your print jobs will not appear on the printers.
  • If your job doesn’t print, check the Print Queue dialog which appears at the bottom of the screen.
  • If the print job is there and has the message Held for authentication, click the retry icon; then re-enter your login details.
