I want to use ipv6 printer. How should I set the address on the printer add screen in macOS 10.14?

I added an IPv6 printer with macOS 10.14 but cannot print.

[Printer Add Dialog]

enter image description here

The printer added with lpadmin was able to print.

sudo lpadmin -p test -v lpd://[fe80::220:6bff:fea3:af79+en0] -P /tmp/test.ppd;
  • This might be an issue with the GUI itself. CUPS (which lpadmin is a part of supported IPv6 since v1.2 (2006). The Apple "add printer dialogs" is basically a front end for it, so it might not know how to handle the IPv6 address format. – Allan Oct 13 at 4:39
