Step 1: Locate the white letter H in a blue box, located in your dock. This is your “Network Location “Icon.


Step 2: Click the white letter H in a blue box from the menu that appears. This will attempt to connect to your H drive.


Step 3: Wait while the network connection is established. If you cannot connect, double-check to be sure you are properly connected to the APS wireless network or that your hardwired connection is working.


Step 4: By default, “Name:” will be filled in with the name of your computer account, probably “Teacher.” Recall that this is not the same as your OneLogin credentials. Change “Name:” to your OneLogin user name (firstname.lastname) and enter your OneLogin password, then press “Connect.”


Step 5: Your H drive should now appear.


Step 6: The “Add Printers” installer will now work. You can find it back in the “Network Location” menu, which you found by clicking the white letter H in the blue box in your dock. Once it opens, find “Yorktown” and double click (one at a time) the printers you want to install.


Please be very patient while installing printers. The windows can take some time to appear. After you double-click the printer that you wish to install, it can take several minutes to install. There will be no apparent activity while the installation takes place.

To see if a printer is installed, you can open the “Printers” pane of your “System Preferences.” You can also right click any printer to set it as the default printer.
