ICS, Adding an ICS Printer in OS X 10.5 and later

This page contains information about adding a printer definition in OS X 10.5 and later in order to print to an ICS printer from a remote location.

Apple OS X 10.6 support has ended!

Apple has ended its support of OS X versions 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and earlier. Campus policy requires that computers connecting to the network must run a supported operating system. To continue accessing University computing and networking services, you will need to upgrade to a supported operating system. For more information, see Maintained Operating Systems.

If you have questions, please contact the Technology Services Help Desk at consult@illinois.edu.

Using Internet Printing Protocol, users can connect to ICS printers from OS X 10.5 and later.
