Install printers with Apple Remote Desktop


This document describes installing printers to multiple machines on the network vi Apple Remote Desktop.  The system needs to be running cups printing software.


Using the print utility, install the printer(s) on one machine. Printer Setup Utility
Get the following files/directory from the configured computer:
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf
/etc/cups/ppd
/etc/cups/printers.conf
cups directory
In ARD, create a "Copy Items" task that includes the cups files/directory.  Place items in /private/etc/cups, on all the machines you need.
