I am not able to get my HPLaserjet 2300 printer to working in suse 9.3.
I set it up with yast for the tcp address 1.9.168.0.31, it says it is
ready, but printing a test page results in nothing. http://localhost:631
show the print que as waiting. I can ping the address fine. I get the
following from the /var/log/messages which appears to say the printer is
trying on the parallel port.


Jul 3 07:26:16 linux kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [PCSPP]
Jul 3 07:26:16 linux kernel: lp0: using parport0 (polling).
Jul 3 07:26:16 linux kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [PCSPP]
Jul 3 07:26:42 linux syslog-ng[2801]: STATS: dropped 0

(This all worked in suse 9.2) Any suggestions on what the problem could be?
