  4. select Add a Printer using TCP/IP address or hostname
  5. on next screen
    • enter IP address of the printer
    • enter (arbitrary) port name
  6. on next screen select relevant printer driver
  7. after installation completes, right click on printer icon and select "Printing Preferences" -> "Advanced"
