Net-Print is currently supported for:

  • macOSĀ 10.13 (High Sierra)

In order to install Net-Print or print to a Net-Print printer, you must be connected to one of Cornell's wired or wi-fi networks (except the Cornell-Visitor wireless network). If you're off-campus, use CU VPN to connect to Cornell's network.
Be sure to follow the steps in both sections.
  1. Install the Net-Print Software (the information in this article)
  2. Add a Print Queue (links to another article)
    You can add printers when you install the software and/or later.

Install the Net-Print Software

  1. Download the Net-Print for Mac installer.
    You may be asked to enter your NetID and associated password at this point.
  2. If the file does not unpack automatically, find the package (called Net-PrintPC_OSX_6.6.dmg, usually in your Downloads folder) and double-click it.
  3. Open the Net-PrintPC_OSX_6.6 icon that appears on your desktop and double-click Net-PrintPC_OSX_6.6.pkg. The install wizard will start.
  4. Click through the wizard, accepting all default values.
    When asked for your Username and Password, this is the account on your Mac, not your NetID.

When the installer finishes, a text file will open. It contains a short version of the information in our Add a Mac Print Queue article.
