I want to add a network printer on my MBP13R mid-2013. I open the dialog box Add printer (Addprinter.app). I begin to fill the form for IP adress of my printer (by typing the hostname). I only type a few letters and the window hangs.

The only way to stop it is to use kill -9 PID command in Terminal (using ps aux|grep -i print for obtaining the PID of AddPrinter.app).

After this I obtain the following lines in Console:

02/02/2015 16:32:57,316 com.apple.preference.printfax.remoteservice[3869]: __agent_connection_block_invoke_2: Connection error - Connection interrupted

Do you have any idea for solving this trouble?


  • Network: wire connection (thunderbolt adapter) with DHCP
  • Yosemite 10.10.2

SOLUTION: the firewall app HandsOff blocked DNS requests even if I desactivated it. I uninstalled it and now it works fine.
