MAC Network Printing / Adding TCPIP Port

I'm having issues installing a Konica Minolta C451 as a TCP/IP printer on a MAC OS 10 maching.  I installed the C451 on a Windows XP machine as a TCP/IP port without any issues so I know I have the correct IP.  I downloaded the MAC driver from the Konica Minolta website so I know I have the correct driver.  Need steps on how to install a TCP/IP printer on a MAC Machine. Have no experience with MACs at all

If your computer has OS 10.5 (Leopard), pull down the Apple Menu to System Preferences and to Print & Fax Preferences. There should be a + button to add a printer. Try also the help menu.

On OS 10.4 and older, the same functionality is found in the Printer Utlility found in \Applications\Utiltiies.

  1. Open your system preference application
  2. Click on Print and Fax
  3. Click the "+" symbol to add a printer
  4. Click on IP
  5. Leave Protocol as the default
  6. Enter the IP Address of the printer
  7. Leave the Queue blank
  8. Enter a friendly name for your printer
  9. Enter a description(if you want)
  10. For print using , search for your installed driver
  11. Click on add in the lower right corner
  12. Test printing
  13. All should be working
  14. let me know if you have any other questions
