How to map a printer on a Mac

In this post we will talk about mapping a printer on a Mac. The process to configure a network as well as local printer will remain same hence perform same steps to map either type:

i. Goto Preferences and open Printer & Faxes.
ii. Click on "+" on the next screen select IP tab.
iii. Enter the IP Address and click on Add.
iv. Mac will collect required information and add the printer automatically.

If in case this does not works we need to add the drivers:
Go to Preferences > open Printer & Faxes > IP > goto Print using & select the driver from the menu.

Though all the drivers are preloaded whle installation of OS X but sometimes we also need to add the drivers.
