    With Macs, you should always try connecting and setting up the printer in System Prefs > Print & Fax, first. Most drivers are already installed or will be automatically updated.

    Didn't your printer come with an install disc? The instructions/user guide should tell you if it will even work with Mac OSX.
    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

    If you do not have the disc check the Epson site. I looked earlier today and they do have drivers posted for it as well as links to the other software. Though I just noticed that the link I found appears to be to the European site. Epson Stylus SX425W : Drivers & Software

    I did see a post on the Apple Discussion forum suggesting that there are sometimes problems getting this device to work fully on a network. Apparently there is some type of conflict between Apple's Bonjour protocol and the protocol Epson is using. If you have similar issues try following the steps in post #3 of this thread https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0 Apparently someone name sitcom managed to solve the problem.
