Printing for Faculty & Staff


Most departments on campus have at least one wired or wireless printer connected to the Trinity internet network that can be used by Trinity faculty and staff. Please note that there are many different models in use, so ITS cannot offer troubleshooting support for every printer on campus.

Getting Started

 

Connecting to a Network Printer - Windows

Your Trinity-issued computer should come pre-installed with correct printer drivers and a connection to your office's networked printer. However, if you do not see the printer you wish to use listed when you go to print or if you encounter any other issues, please contact the ITS HelpDesk for assistance.

 

 

Connecting to a Network Printer - Apple

  1. Look for the IP address of the printer you wish to use - it might be in the printer's settings/screen or posted on the printer. Write it down. 
  2. Click on the Apple logo on the upper left-hand side of the desktop and select System Preferences from the menu.
  3. Select Printers & Scanners. This will bring up a list of printers you have connected to on that particular computer.
  4. To add a new network printer, click on the (+) button below this left-hand list. 
  5. From the menu that pops up, select the IP tab to search for the printer by its IP address. 
    1. Choose Line Printer Daemon - LPD for the Protocol 
    2. For the Address line, type the IP address of the desired printer
  6. Once the IP address has been entered, the computer will automatically detect the appropriate driver for the printer. Once the driver has been found, the printer will appear in your list of printers. Verify that the model matches the printer you are targeting.
  7. Click the Add button. 

The printer will now appear on the list of printers that have been added to the computer.
