    I'd like to connect my macbook to the the school print server, but i don't know how to get it to work.

    There is a guide on how to do in in windows with the steps being:

    Step 1

    -open windows credentials


    Step 2

    -enter address, username and password


    Step 3

    -open explorer, go to the printserver address and choose connect on wanted the printer


    I'd like to know how to do this on mac, so i can connect my macbook to the school printserver.

    I'd appreciate all the help i can get

    When you're connected to the network, you can try to go Apple menu> System Preferences> Printers & Scanners. Then click the + icon at the bottom and search for printers there. Are any of those printers visible and can you try to connect to them from there?

    They aren't visible from there. I need to log in to the printserver some way and then they should become visible after doing so
