MAC Printing Setup - PaperCut

The recommended method for printing from a MAC is web or mobility printing - please try these instructions first: Mobile Printing - PaperCut

If this isn't sufficient for your needs, then below are alternative instructions.

 

**NOTE** Due to the number of variables and the fact that MAC machines are not under IT control and do not have a standard configuration, these instructions may not be exact and are just guidelines.
