Installing a POS receipt printer on Mac

Hi experts. I want to try using our Star TSP600 receipt printer on an Apple Mac computer. To what I can tell, there is not a device driver to download. Vendor Technical docs say use CUPS.

I briefly learned about CUPS in my Linux class. So I'm not familiar with it.

To set up the thermal printer I believe I need to install and configure cups. Is this correct?  Is setting up a print server the correct approach?  Ultimately it would be nice if I were able to print receipts from three different macs.

I am hoping to integrate with new light speed retail POS software. I appreciate thoughts. Thank you.

Well done! I wasnt sure where to begin. I had to run the command to enable web interface. I am pleased to see so much documentation.

Thank you Ian.
