Hi Art,

The other thing to try is configuring the printer via a web browser.
Open Konqueror and enter localhost:631 as the url

Select "Do Administration Tasks" ---> "Add Printer" --->
When you get to the selection of Device from the drop down list select
"LPD/LPR Host or Printer"

Then enter the URI as per the examples given e.g.

and continue from there.

I will try and configure my laptop at work with one of our remote printers
give you the procedures sometime this evening if I get a chance.
