Lookup Printer IP Address on Mac OS X

Modified on: Tue, Aug 27, 2019 at 4:26 PM


When adding a network printer to your Apple computer, you will have to do so via the IP address instead of the printer's network name. Please follow these instructions to locate the IP address of the printer you are attempting to add to your computer.

  • Click on the "Spotlight" icon in the top menu bar (far right)


  • Type "Network Utility" in the search field and press "Enter".


  • Click to select the Lookup tab at the top. Enter the printer's network name in the field below - you will need to add .printer.wfu.edu to the end of the network name. For example, ZSR-207-XRX will need to be entered as ZSR-207-XRX.printer.wfu.edu. Click Lookup and the IP address will be displayed in the white box below


You will then use that IP address to add the printer to your Apple computer. If you need any assistance with this process, please contact the Service Desk at 336-758-4357 or Submit a Ticket.
