Printing on Mac OS X – Adding a Networked Printer at Psychological Sciences

Attaching a Network printer to OS/X(LPD)

The following quide will assist you in installing a netwok printer on your OS/X system. Latest drivers for HP printers (v.5.0) are available at the following location: Note: this download is 575 MB. This should be downloaded if the printer model that you wish to install IS NOT AVAILABLE on the printer list in Step 4B (below).

Apple HP Drivers v5.1 for macOS:

Step 1.

Browse to System  Preferences from the “Apple” menu on the upper left corner of screen as shown.

Figure 1.

Step 2.

From the full system preferences window (shown below), select “Printers & Scanners“.

Figure 2.


Step 3.

Whether Mac OS 10.8.x to 10.12.x is on your computer, make sure that  “Printing” is selected and click the small “+” on lower left corner of window

Step 4.

(4A) Again,whether Mac OS 10.8.x to 10.12.x is on your computer, the following screen will appear. Make sure that “IP” is selected from Printer Browser as shown and that LPD protocol is used.


Fill in “Printer Address” with

“Queue” should be completed with the name of the printer you will print to. It should be Printerxxx (xxx is the room where the printer is located). Printer190C is shown throughout this document.

Under “Name”, enter the display name of the printer you wish to print to. It should be “Printer Xxx”. In this example case, it would be Printer 190C.

(4B) Under “Use”, Point and Click on “Select Printer Software”. It will almost always be an HP. You must select the model name for the printer being installed. In the case of the Printer in Bous 190C, the printer “HP LaserJet 600 M601 M602 M603” should be chosen. If you do not see the correct model, the latest HP print drivers are available at the following location See below for the model associated with each of the printers.

For printer options click on the “Configure” button as the printer loads. On the following screen after selecting printer model make sure that “Optional Tray 3” has “500-Sheet Input Tray” selected and that the “Duplex Unit” is also checked. You may need to push the scroll bar up (at right) in order to see all the options.



We maintain many network printers. The ones listed below are available for use by different populations, so PLEASE note the group to which you belong and do NOT print to any others.

Doing so would certainly risk the patience of specific faculty and the administration and could result in loss of network privaleges.

Printer name           Printer Model
Printer118                   HP LaserJet 600 m601 m602 m603
Printer145a                 HP LaserJet 600 m601 m602 m603
Printer173                   HP LaserJet 600 m601 m602 m603
Printer190C                 HP LaserJet 600 m601 m602 m603
PrinterA316                HP LaserJet 600 m601 m602 m603

Graduate Students:
Printer name           Printer Model
Printer190C               HP LaserJet 600 m601 m602 m603
PrinterA316              HP LaserJet 600 m601 m602 m603

Step 6.

If successful the printer will be listed as shown. Note that if more printers are to be installed, they can also be done from the “Printer Browser” screen.  Simply refer to step #3 above. You do not need to start at the system preferences screen.

Mac OS X 10.8.x to 10.11.x


Step 7.

Please do NOT– ever select “Share this printer on the network”. It is a good practice to print a test page to the printer at this time. If you are unable to print create a work order.

Keycard Request Instructions

Keycard Requests

We have arranged with the Husky One Card Officeto provide an upgrade to UConn ID cards to make them PROXIMITY-ENABLED. This applies to undergraduate students who are identified by the Psychology department as needing such cards.

Next week, you should receive a follow-up message from Matthew Butwill with directions on where to find a web-based Proximity Enabled Keycard request form. Going forward, please use that form to request keycard activations and extensions. Those needing Physical keys will still need to contact Virgina Wetzel directly.

Please note that we will not accept a request directly from undergraduate students themselves to make their keycards proximity-enabled. Requests must come from one of our faculty, graduate students, or staff and must specify the following information.

  1. The PI (faculty/staff) responsible for the activations.
  2. Full student name (no nicknames)
  3. PeopleSoft number – a 7 digit number on front of your Husky One card
  4. netid of student
  5. Date access needs to begin
  6. Date access needs to expire
  7. Times of day access is needed (Weekdays/24 hr, Weekdays 7am-7pm, 24/7, etc)
  8. Rooms / areas where access is needed
  9. If you already have a PROXIMITY card, please provide the 5 digit number on the BACK of Husky One card.


  • Pick up authorized request form from Virgina Wetzel (main office – 106) and provide to Husky One Card Office

There will be no charge to the students or the Psychology department for the upgrade of UConn ID cards to PROXIMITY-ENABLED cards as long as we follow this protocol. We cannot pick up the cards for students, because they are the property of the student. Obviously, the sooner the requests are made, the sooner the students will have access to their cards.

Some students will eventually come to you with the new cards, so please ask them before accidentally requesting another. Obviously, if a student already has a card with proximity access, that card number should also be provided with the initial request information (see above) and no need to visit Virginia Wetzel unless a physical key is also needed.

Finally, send Psych IT the 5 digit card number on the back of the Proximity-Enabled UConn ID. In the best of both worlds, the card number should be verified by Virginia, or whoever is requesting the access to assure that the numbers are correct. Whoever verifies the number should copy Virginia with the card number.

Because the new cards belong to the students, there will be no need to request that students return these cards.

By this September, all of the white proximity cards previously issued by Psychology for undergraduate students will expire and should be returned to Virginia Wetzel.

Graduate Students

The Husky One Card office has agreed to provide all of our graduate students with the new proximity-enabled cards at no cost. Simply present your old UConn ID card and they will issue the new proximity-enabled one (no need for authorized form from Virginia). Please remember to contact Psych IT (copy Virginia) with the new card number and if applicable do return the old white proximity card, if one was issued for your use.
