For all operating systems except Snow Leopard (10.6), start here:

3)  Open System Preferences ->Printers.
4)  Click on the plus sign [+] to to add a new printer.
5)  Click IP on the top tab and then choose Line Printer Daemon for the type of connection.

7)  In the Print Using box, click on the drop-down arrow and choose Select Printer Software. Search for 4005. Choose the correct result and click OK.
8)  Change “Name” to something useful to you, such as “SAR-color.”
