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: http://business.toshiba.com/support/index.jsp
- 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: 188.8.131.52
- 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’.
