Using MDS Networked Printers

You can configure your LDS machine to print to MDS Networked Printers with the script we've provided.

  • Under Applications → Durham Utilities → MDS Printer Setup you will find a tool that displays all of the MDS printers on the network.
  • Confirm you wish to install a printer
  • Select the networked printer you wish to install
  • Make a note of the description, it will help you find the right driver
  • A new window will now open, first select the manufacturer
  • Then the printer model
  • Then the specific driver you wish to use. One of them should be marked as "recommended"
  • You may be asked about optional extras such as Duplex units and additional trays
  • Confirm the remaining dialogs, and you should be able to print a test page.
