Hi guys


I have tried everything to add my mac to a network printer. It just gets stuck at a message saying "hold for authentication".

I've installed the KYOCERA driver and referred to that when I added the printer (I selected windows, then workgroup , then the pc & then the printer).

I selected guest when I added it. As far as my brother is aware he has no passwords enable on the network, I've even tried his pc's username with no password (he doesn't have a password to log in to windows) - but this didn't work either.


After the error of "hold for authentication" if I click the refresh icon, a message pops up saying "Enter your name and password for the printer Kyocera Fs-1128mfp. Then it only gives an option for a. Registered user where I then have to specify a name and password, or alternatively, b. use an apple ID. I've tried both these approaches and it doesn't work.


Any help will be much appreciated - if you need more information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.


Thank you
