Printing to Xerox copiers directly from personally owned macOS computers will require the following steps. Depending on the copier configuration, you may require a department ID for access.

Step-by-step guide

note: you will need the IP address for the copier. That information is outside the scope of this document, and will need to be retrieved from the administrative offices where the copier is located.

  1. Download & Install the Xerox copier drivers - located here as of December 10, 2018.
    1. If the previous link does not work, you will need to visit http://www.support.xerox.com, select the appropriate copier model that you are attempting to print to, and download the drivers associated with that selection.
  2. Click the Apple menu, open System Preferences → Printers and Scanners.
  3. Click the "+" button to add a new printer, select "IP" 
    1. Select "Line Printer Daemon - LPD" as the protocol
    2. Enter the information for the copier (IP address, copier name).
    3. In the bottom drop-down menu, select "Select Software..."
    4. Type in the Xerox model number in the search field - if you have installed the software in step 1, you will see the appropriate driver for the Xerox model in the list.
  4. Click "Add" to add the printer.


For devices with Xerox Standard Accounting (that require an ID to use), you need to be sure to use the System print dialog box. In products such as Google Chrome, and the Adobe product suite, they use their own printer dialog boxes - for these, be sure to switch to the System dialog (or click on the "Printer..." button in Adobe products, then "Print" from there). Otherwise, you will not be prompted for the print code, and your print job will fail.
