The instructions below are for devices running a recent version of macOS, and connected to Mac-Wifi.

It is a good idea to first download and install the latest HP Universal Printer Driver before adding the printer.

  1. Go to System Preferences and click on Printers & Scanners.

We can now test to send job to the printer queue and print a page. Since the printer server needs to know a valid user, a username and password dialog will appear. Type in your username and password for your account on physserv as shown below (make sure to specify the PHYSICS domain), tick "Remember this password in my keychains" and then click "OK".
