Save credentials when printing with Active Directory from a Mac

Dec 24, 2010 - Leave a Comment

Setting your Mac up to print to a Windows print server with Active Directory is pretty straight forward, but it’s really annoying that your network credentials aren’t stored which causes the login popup screen to display. Looking for a solution to this, I came across a post at TheAppleBlog, and the author had the exact same frustrations I did. It’s not the most straight forward method in the world, but it works. You can check it out here at TheAppleBlog: Printing with Active Directory Credentials.

I’m sort of left wondering why Apple hasn’t resolved this itself within Mac OS X, or maybe they have and I haven’t found a way to implement it?
