-No ideaOSX uses the same CUPS system as linux ,so I guess it'​s ​easyIf anybody wants to write thiscontact me.+[thanks to Alice Ohlson] 
 +  - Go to **System Preferences** > **Printers & Scanners**. 
 +  - Click the **+** sign to add a printer. 
 +  - Go to the **IP** tab. 
 +  - Then there are two (alternative) options: 
 +    - **Alt. 1**:​(Recommended) This will automatically detect the printer drivers. 
 +      - In the Address fieldenter the hostname (e.g. ''​lw1.hep.lu.se''​). 
 +      - The rest of the information will be filled in automatically (you can change the Name and Location fields to something more useful). 
 +      - Click "​Add"​. 
 +    - **Alt. 2**: This will go through the division print server, ensuring that the printer is only contacted via the server. Unfortunately the division'​s ​cups server does not share printer driversMAC will pick the "​Generic Postscript printer"​ which will miss most of the printers feature. 
 +      - In the Address field, enter the CUPS server (''​cups.hep.lu.se:​631''​). 
 +      - In the Queue field, enter enter the queue (''​printers/​lw1''​). 
 +        - You can change the Name and Location fields ​to something more useful. 
 +      - Click "​Add"​. 
 + 
 +In order to see the printers through the CUPS web interfaceyou will probably need to enable it on the command line: 
 +<​code:​bash>​ sudo cupsctl WebInterface=yes</​code>​ 
 +Then you can see the printers in the browser by going to ''​http://​localhost:​631/​printers/''​.
