  15. Right-click on the port 9100 line to open a choice box.

At the Macintosh OS X (10.4) workstation

  1. Open your Safari web browser to http://localhost:631/admin, logging in if necessary.
  2. Under the line called Printers, click on the Add Printer button to open the Add New Printer web page.
  3. Enter a Name, Location, and Description so you can easily identify this printer later in your Printer Setup Utility's Printer List.
  4. Click on the Continue button to accept your choices and to open the Device list.
  5. Click on the scroll bar to the right of the device (My screen shows Adobe PDF as the first device) to show the list of available devices.
  6. Click on AppSocket/HP JetDirect and click on the Continue button to open the Device URI page.
  7. In the Device URI field, type socket://###.###.###.###:XXXX  where ###.###.###.### is the ip address you copied from the DocuSP diagnostics utility and XXXX is the port being used for the socket printing. In this case we're using port 9100, so the entry might look like socket://192.168.1.14:9100.
  8. Click on the Continue button to accept your socket string and to show your Make choices.
  9. Click on  Raw and click on the Continue button to show your model choices.
  10. Click on Raw Queue (en) and click on the Continue button to complete your socket printing installation and to show the Admin note that the printer has been added successfully.
  11. In the menu at the top of the page, click on Printers to show your list of printers.
  12. Next to your newly-added printer, click on the Print Test Page button to send a test page to your printer.

    If your test page prints, your installation is complete. If it doesn't, please review the steps above to see if there may have been a mistake made in your data entry, or use network tracing methods to make sure your workstation's output can be routed to your printer.
