Step 0: Install latest Xerox WorkCentre 7545 drivers
  1. Make sure you have the latest Xerox WorkCentre 7545 Mac OS X drivers installed on your computer. You can locate them here: http://www.support.xerox.com/support/workcentre-7545-7556/downloads/enus.html?associatedProduct=XRIP_WC7525_base&operatingSystem=macosx
Step 1: Access CUPS via local web browser
  1. Launch Safari (Firefox has known issues with CUPs).
  2. In the URL bar enter http://localhost:631
Step 2: Add printer through CUPs Administration
  1. Click the Administration tab
  2. Click the Add Printer button under Printers

  3. When you select the Add Printer button, you will be challenged for local machine administrator authentication credentials. This is an area where a lot of mistakes happen and you can potentially enter in the wrong information. What your system is specifically asking you for is your local physical machine administrator credentials because you will be making a change to the local physical machine service. Do not utilize your network credentials for this authentication because it will fail.
  4. Enter your local machine administrator credentials in the newly opened window and then Click the Log In button.

  5. Your system might pause a little bit while it is progressing to the next stage. Don't Panic. This is okay.

  10. Scroll through the selections in the Model window until you locate the Xerox WC 7545, 2.6.0 (en, en, bg, cs, da, de, el, es, fi, fr, hu, it, ja, ko, nl, no, pl, pt, ro, ru, sv, tr, uk, zh_CN, zh_TW) choice and Click the Add Printer button.
