Port 631 is used for CUPS admin. Fire up your web browser and point it
at "http://localhost:631" and you should see the CUPS admin screen. You
want to manage printers, then add a printer.
Port 9100 is the default port for JetDirect interfaces. Using the CUPS
wizard, after you give the new printer a name, location and description
you'll come to the "device" screen. Choose "AppSocket/HP JetDirect".
Next you're asked for "Device URI". Mine is "socket://lj4:9100", where
"lj4" is the *name* of the printer I input a few screens ago. (It
corresponds to "print queue" in the lpr scheme.)
Then pick your driver and you should be off to the races.
