Quick Start

1. Open File Explorer and enter \\winprint1 (or \\winprint2) into the address bar.

 

 

2. If prompted, login with your CS username and password. Optionally, select ‘Remember my credentials’.

 

 

3. Once connected, double-click the printer you wish to use. The folder 00Readme has additional instructions.

 

 

4. The printer is installed.

 

 

5. The printer is now ready to use.

 

 

Printing from the Command Line

These instructions are for installing a direct connection from OSX to a Xerox CS printer from the command line. This option is more useful for laptops as it does not require you to login to CS to access the printer.

1. Open the Finder, then Applications, and then Utilities to start the Terminal.

 

 

2. Alternatively, select Terminal from the Start Bar.

 

3. Download the printer driver: xrx7855.ppd

 

4. A list of printer names can be found at the top of this page.

 

5. Install printer with sudo lpadmin -p -P </path/to/xrx7855.ppd> -v lpd://printername/lp -E
