This printer works perfectly with apsfilter. The latter does /not/ need
cups (luckely imho) but works very well with the standard unix lpd.

Install apsfilter with "portinstall -rR apsfilter" and you'll be happy.
You can also go for cups, but make sure you read some installation papers
on the net very carefully. Google is your friend.
