Enabling CUPS Printer Interface for Mac
CUPS is a network printing service used by Mac computers. It allows you to setup your printers on a network, and customise options such as cash drawer setup.
First off, go to http://localhost:631/printers/ .
A screen will appear saying ‘Web Interface is Disabled’
To enable CUPS:
- Select and copy ‘cupsctl WebInterface=yes’
- Next, click the magnifying glass in the top right hand corner of your screen and search for ‘Terminal’.
- Once in terminal, paste in ‘cupsctl WebInterface=yes’ and click enter.
Now you should be able to go to http://localhost:631/printers/ and see your installed printers.
To change settings for your printer or to [set up your cash drawer](), click the desired printer.
