This article will show you how to install CUPS so that your Zebra Printer will work with Mac OS. This is an intense process, so we suggest communicating with your IT department before getting started.
Step 1: Enable CUPS Web Interface
Open up Terminal and type:
sudo cupsctl WebInterface=yes
This will allow you to visit http://localhost:631/
Step 2: Add Printer
First, make sure the printer is plugged into your computer and turned on.
Then, from http://localhost:631/ choose the Administration tab > Add Printer (Note: You may be asked to input your administrator name and password to move forward.)
Next, you'll be prompted to put in a port number. You can find the port number by going back into Terminal and typing
lpinfo -v | grep usb
Grab the port number by selecting from "usb://Zebra........" all the way until before the "?"
Paste this into the port number and choose Continue
Next, Enter an appropriate Name, Description and Location for your printer.
Uncheck the "Share This Printer" box and click "Continue"

Enter an appropriate Name, Description and Location for your class. It must differ from the raw printer name chosen previously. It also must include the word Zebra
