Best bet is to open up a similar jack and note how it is connected. There are "standard" ways of connecting jacks using these wire-pairs, but not everyone follows the standards.

My guess would be that the blue/white-blue pair (one of the whites should have a blue stripe, or at least be partly twisted around the blue wire) is what you want to use, and that you will connect the blue wire to the red on the jack, and the white-blue to the green of the jack. If you have two lines, you should also connect the orange/white-orange pair to yellow/black respectively. The green/white-green pair is probably not used in your installation.

Here's a couple of websites that should help determining what to connect where:
