The easiest way would be to fire up a browser, go to localhost:631 to get the CUPS web admin console and go to the Administration tab.
Click on the Add Printer button and follow the steps there:
Enter a name for the printer, click continue,
If it is a network printer you can leave the selection as AppSocket/JetDirect and click continue.
Enter the IP Address of the printer. i.e. socket://<ip address here> and click continue.
Select the printer type from the list and click continue.
If, for whatever reason, you cannot get to the web console you can add a printer with something like:
lpadmin -p <PrinterName> -E -v socket://<IP Address here> -P <driver file>
You may have to experiment with different drivers if one for your printer is not available.
