How to Print to the Copier/Printer from a Mac

  1. First download the driver on your Mac. You can find the driver on the Ricoh website: Ricoh. If your goal is to use the OT or Admin copier, search for mp 8001. If you want to use the PT, HS, SLHS or CPR copier, search for mp 6002.
  2. Download the correct driver for your Mac OS version (All the Mac drivers are near the bottom.)
  3. Install the driver by double-clicking on the file you downloaded.
  4. Go to Apple ->System Preferences and click on Printers and Faxes
  5. Click on the plus sign [+] to add a new printer.
  6. Click IP on the top tab and then choose Line Printer Daemon for the type of connection
  7. Type in your appropriate IP address:
  8. The program will search for the driver and find it automatically. You should see Ricoh Aficio MP 8001 PS or Ricoh Aficio MP 6002 in the Print Using box. If you don’t, click on the drop-down arrow and choose Select Printer Software. Search for 8001. Choose the correct result and hit OK.
  9. Change Name to something useful to you, such as “Ricoh,” or “PT copier.”
  10. Click Add.
  11. For installable options, change:
    Large capacity tray: installed
    Finisher: For Admin and OT use 4040, for the other SLHS, PTAT and HS, use 4060
  12. Click Continue
  13. You’re ALMOST done.  For most copiers, you will need a copier code. You can acquire this from your department administrator. Once you have it, follow the Mac instructions on this page to  set up your user code.
