How do I connect to OrePrint or OreCopy from a Mac?

There are several ways to connect a Mac to a the OrePrint or OreCopy systems on the Mines network. Here are two that work well for most Mac computers on campus.

  • Connect to the OrePrint website ( and submit a job via Web Print.
  • Use Bonjour Printer Discovery as indicated below:

Turn your Mac device on and make sure you are connected to the Mines network - these instructions work via wired, wireless, and VPN connections.

  1. Go into System Preferences
  2. Select “Printers & Scanners” option (You may have to unlock the Print & Scan option first to add a printer. To do so, click on the lock icon and type in your Mac password.)
  3. Click the [ + ] at the bottom of the list
  4. Use the search bar to find OrePrint, OrePrintColor, OreCopy or OreCopyColor. These are the print queues you will select when printing non-color or color pages.
  5. The “Bonjour” options are preferable
  6. You’re ready to start printing
  7. If you are using a Mac computer that is not a member of the ADIT domain, the first time you attempt to print to OreCopy or OreCopyColor you will be presented with an authentication dialog.  Be sure to enter your ADIT credentials in the form of:  ADIT\[MyUserName], where [MyUserName] is your actual ADIT ID.  If you do not, you will eventually receive an error from the print queue stating " ! Hold for authentication".

If you still need help configuring a printer -- please submit a Mines Help Center support request at Office Copier, MFP, or Printer Issues
