Turned out to be http:192.168.xx.xx:631/printers/laserjet2300series.
laserjet2300series is what it shown in localhost:631 as the printer name
on the server.

If I select http on the apple cups, it puts in port 80 instead of 631.

Thanks to all for their input. Have a friend who is trying to print to
laserjet 1022 via wireless router to usb print server, but also has had
no success. Works with Windows and with Windows under parallels on the
apple, but not directly from the apple. Also work with the applle when
the printer is plugged in as usb printer. He is leaving for Shanghai
tomorrow, but when he gets back, will try and help him. Will see if what
I learned here applies to his situation.

I think what is confusing is what the printer name should be, but guess
the best way to find this out is to look at localhost:631 instead of
yast hardware printers.
