We have a number of printers available in the space.
Dell 3100 color printer
Printing to the color color from Mac OS
The Internet Printing Protocol on the color printer is closed. Please do not change this, as it will be reset in the morning anyway. You can test the open ports in the Terminal (note that this will print a page with the packet details):
telnet 10.0.1.123 515 // OK for Line Printer Daemon port
telnet 10.0.1.123 9100 // OK for PDL data stream, also known as HP Jetdirect
telnet 10.0.1.123 9100 // not OK for Internet Printing Protocol, the default in Mac OS
To set up the color printer, go to System Preferences > Printers & Scanners. Click on "+" in the bottom left, then on "Add printer or scanner". In the new window, click on the "IP" tab. Enter these details: Address: dell3100.local Protocol: HP Jetdirect - Socket
You may also enter the current IP address of the printer. To get it, print a system report on the printer. Click on the bottom arrow until "Setup", again until "Reports", click the check mark. It should say "System Settings" in the bottom line, otherwise click left and right until you have it. Click the check mark, which prints a report and shows that port 9100 is open.
HP LaserJet Pro 200 color Printer M251nw
Update (January 2017): this printer is out of order.
To use, send your item by email to the address written above the printer. It really works!
Or, to add it as a printer using a driver:
Address is currently: 192.168.1.169
There is also the Lexmark C543, in the corner by the stairs to the kitchen.
This is connected to the network and should be automatically visible to computers on the network or wifi.
The address is currently 10.0.1.27, there is a http server on the printer for checking ink levels, tray status and job status.
If you are on the makespace network now, click here to see it: http://10.0.1.27/
For ubuntu users, you can add this printer by going to:
System settings > Printers > Add
The printer should show up in the list under "Lexmark C543", select it and click "forward".
You will then need to select "Lexmark" from the list, then select "C543" from the next list.
The rest is easy.
The process should be similar for any GNU/Linux with a Gnome installation.
