Lanier Printer Setup (Mac)

Before the setup:

You will need to know the DNS Name, Model and your 5 or 6 digit code for the MFP (Multi-Function Printer).

The DNS Name should be on a white label on the Lanier, the model number is also on the front of the Lanier. Codes are obtainable by either contacting your department’s Administrative Assistant or by calling Print and Copy Services @ 231-2000.

IMPORTANT - Most Lanier printers on NDSU campus require a user code in order to print. You will need to follow ALL instructions before you can print to your Lanier.
