Adding a Printer to your MAC

Mapping Printers on your MAC

STEP 1: Download Driver

    • (Recommended) Normally, I recommend downloading the latest driver from Toshiba site by following these directions
  • Go here:
  • Scroll down until you reach a search box that says ‘Enter product name or number’
  • Search for ‘e-STUDIO756’
  • under e-Bridge Current Drivers
    • If your Mac is Version 10.7 or above, choose ‘Mac OSX 10.7 and later, Single Sided, Monochrome’

(For Snow Leopard and prior) Mac OSX 10.4-10.6 Single Sided, Monocrhome

  • If your Mac is Version 10.4-10.6, choose ‘Mac OSX 10.4 to 10.6, Single Sided, Monochrome’
  • Click the ‘gz’ link to download
  • Note: To see which Mac Version you have, click on the Apple logo -> ‘About This Mac’ and locate the Version number.
    • Click the .dmg you downloaded, follow installation procedure
  • If you get ‘Can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer’, Right-Click –> Open With ‘Installer .app’, answer yes to the similar warning.

STEP 2: Add and Configure New Printer

  • Open ‘System Preferences’ → ‘Printers & Scanners’
  • ‘+’ sign to add a new printer
  • Select type ‘IP’ from the menu across the top, then fill in following options
  • Address:
  • Protocol: ‘Line Printer Daemon – LPD’ (default)
  • Queue: (leave blank)
  • Name: whatever you want (i.e. HST Dept Printer)
  • Location: leave default ‘i.e. History’
  • Use: ‘TOSHIBA MonoMFP-X7’ or ‘TOSHIBA ColorMFP-X4’
    • It should Auto Fill one of these options, but if it does not, click ‘Select Software…’ and locate that option
    • If you cannot find it assure you have followed ‘Step 1’ successfully above.
  • Click ‘Add’, which will then bring up a prompt to select specific printer options we have enabled for our printer
    • Model: (leave default) TOSHIBA e-STUDIO6550CSeries
    • Finisher: Saddle Stitch Finisher
    • Drawers: (leave default) Drawer 1,2 & Drawer 3,4
    • External LCF: Installed
  • Done, done, done!! Now you can print.


  • ‘Print Test Page’ inside Mac does NOT work due to complicated ‘Department ID’ settings, to do test prints just print a simple page from Text Edit or some other simple test print.
  • You will need a complete 5-digit code to print, if you have a 4-digit code please contact the History Department Office for you new code, it will probably be your old 4-digit code starting with a ‘0’.
