💾 QNAP TS-1273AU-RP Upgrade

I recently upgraded to the QNAP TS-1273AU-RP from my trusty Synolog DS1817+ that has served me well for years. I started to make the move to a rack when we moved into the house, and figured this was the next swap that needed to take place to complete that setup. I have 12x12tb drives in …

🖨️ Netgear PS110 Printer Server and OS X

I don’t know how many people have this setup, but if you do, this will help you out. This should give you at least the general knowledge needed to get it all working.

This is the method I used on OS X 10.4 with ALL the printer drivers installed.

  1. Connect the Printers to the Print Server (this should be a given)
  2. Go to to access the built-in CUPS administration tool in OS X. This service shuold already be running so there is no need to start it.
  3. Select “Add Printer”
  4. You should be able to put in a “Name”, “Location”, “Description” on the “Name” it can’t contain spaces, and all around this information isn’t really important.
  5. The PS110 uses LPD, so select LPD printing and enter the URL as “lpd://”, of course you need to replace the IP address with the IP of your print server.
    And the part where it says P2, that is the port on the print server that the printer is hooked to. eg Printer 1 = P1, Printer 2=P2.
  6. After this step, you will be prompted for the printer brand and then given a chance to select the correct driver.
    If you don’t have the correct driver, you may have to download the driver from the OEM or pick the one that fits it the best.
  7. Print a test page. And see if you got it working right. Also, after you have done all this, it should be in your System Preferences under “Print & Fax.”

I hope this helps some people, as it took me a few tries right off the bat to get it working with OS X.
