MAC Network Printing / Adding TCPIP Port

Posted on 2009-02-19
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
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.
