How to connect a 3 computers to one photocopier machine using an IP address.

As all your PCs have Internet connection, I'm assuming that you have some kind of "network" already installed.
On each PC connected to LAN (Local Area Network) use "add printer wizard" and choose "add network printer" option. The wizard should be able to find your Canon device.

I want to know what cable i need for my canon gp215 photocopier to connect to my mac comuter to use as a printer?

this photocopier has an ethernet network card installed. you need to connect the copier to a switch, hub or router and connect your mac to the switch, hub or router.

i think this copier also has a parallel port. you need to get a USB to Parallel port converter. this comes with a cable and will cost you about €10. You can use this to connect directly to the copier and use it as a printer.

You will need to download drivers for the copier and install them on your mac, see here

Hope this helps!

How to network a Canon Imagerrunner 3030 copier

Set the Ip address on the copier to match your network's Ip - only use different last 3 digits (3 digits that aren't currently in use on your network. Set the Subnet to the same as your network's Subnet. Set gateway to your Router's IP address.
Then install printer driver on your server, or all individual PC's if you are not using a server . When prompted select "create new port", then select Tcp/Ip port from the drop down menu, then type in the Ip you set on your copier, and continue to follow prompts.
If you are using a server, then you should select "share this printer" when prompted, and after installation is complete, go to each PC, and go to the "add printer wizard, and select network printer, then select "browse" to find it on the network, and select it.
that's it.
good luck!
