    how to assign an IP address to a printer in MAC OS X

    Locked

    by rvanvugt ·

    OK, the title says it all; I need to assign an IP address to
    my new Konica
    2430 DL printer in order to get it working. How do I do
    this? I already figured out what the IP address of the
    printer probably is by printing the ‘config page’ of the
    printer and using this address in the configuration, but it
    did not work so far.
    Your help
    would be much appreciated from this nontechnical MAC
    user.

    Best regards,
    Richard

        You need to set the printer’s IP address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway to match your current network. Example if the MAC’s Configuration is;
        192.168.0.20 (IP)
        255.255.255.0 (Subnet Mask)
        192.168.0.1 (Gateway)
        Then set your printer to an unused static IP of something like;
        192.168.0.101 (IP)
        255.255.255.0 (Subnet Mask)
        192.168.0.1 (Gateway)
        Also set one of your DNS addressess to the routers gateway (likely the same as the reported gateway on your MAC.
