How do I connect to the printer? (Mac)

Upon your arrival, you have received a username and password for your printing account. Be sure to find those, as you'll need them for the installation.


Mac OS

  1. First thing's first. You'll need a driver for your Mac. Go to https://www.konicaminolta.eu/eu-en/support/download-centre
  2. Search for the corresponding product depending on your primary spot 
    • 'bizhub C227' (The View and Factory 2.0) 
    • 'bizhub C224e' (The Space)
    • 'bizhub C250i' (Greenhouse)
    • You just need one driver across all floors - so yeah, you can print on the other printers as well w/o additional work on your side
  3. Install the driver as any other DMG package. Please note that the installation won't start automatically after the DMG image is mounted. You have to manually start it by double-clicking the file inside the mounted DMG image in the Finder under 'Locations'.
  4. Go to System Preferences and choose 'Print & Scan'.
  5. Start adding a new printer by clicking on '+' below the list of available devices.
  6. Click on the IP tab and enter Address your_username@10.91.10.99 For example if your username is ‘puzl’ then the Address should be ‘puzl@10.91.10.99’ (without the quotes).
  7. For 'Type' choose ‘Line Printer Daemon - LPD’ in the Protocol field
  8. For 'Name' type choose what you would like. 'Puzl Printer' for example.
  9. For 'Use' choose ‘Select software…’ option, select 'KONICA MINOLTA C224e PS or C227 PS (the latter being the workable option for newer OSs) from the list of available printer drivers. Click OK.
  10. Click 'Add' and if a second window appears leave all fields as is and click OK. Now the printer is ready for use.

Mac OS X  (everything before Sierra / 10.12)

If for some reason you are still running a software from the previous era, follow these steps which are slightly different than the ones above. Why not update your software (and maybe hardware)?

  1. First thing's first. You'll need a driver for your Mac. Go to https://www.konicaminolta.eu/eu-en/support/download-centre
  2. Search for the product 'bizhub C224e' 
  3. Please note that the installation won't start automatically after the DMG image is mounted. You have to manually start it by double-clicking the file inside the mounted DMG image.
  4. Go to System Preferences and choose 'Print & Scan'.
  5. Start adding a new printer by clicking on '+' below the list of available devices.
  6. Click the 'Advanced' button in the toolbar. If you don't see the 'Advanced' button right click on the space in the toolbar and choose 'Customize'. After that drag the button from the appeared list and drop it on the toolbar.
  7. For 'Type' choose 'LPD/LPR Host or Printer'.
  8. For 'URL' type 'lpd://your_username@10.91.10.99'. For example if your username is 'puzl' then the URL should be 'lpd://puzl@10.91.10.99'.
  9. For 'Use' choose 'KONICA MINOLTA C224e PS' from the list of available printer drivers.
  10. Click 'Add' and then 'OK' to finish the installation. Now the printer is ready for use.

Note: Printing over VPN can fail so be sure to disable it!
