Canon LBP3370 Setup

Windows and Mac OS-X drivers are available from Canon's website - just follow the "drivers and software" link (top right). Bob also has a Windows-only Installer CD.

On Windows you have a choice of PCL5, PCL6 and UFR II drivers. You may want to try more than one (just make sure the port name is different).

On Mac, it looks like only the UFR II driver is available.

Adding the printer in Mac OS-X

It's not at all obvious how to do this, so here are some click-by-click instructions.

  1. Install the drivers by downloading from the web as above, open the "dmg" and run the installer. Annoyingly, this requires all applications to be shut and a restart.
  2. Open the Printer Setup Utility (Applications->Utilities)
  3. Immediately click on "More Printers..." at the bottom of the dialogue box
  4. Then in the uppermost pull-down menu, select "Canon IP (UFRII)"
  5. Then enter the IP address: 155.198.150.214
  6. Then you should be home and dry.
