Ah, now it all makes sense. Set up /etc/printcap like this:
Now you'll create a script, call it /usr/sbin/dj550c-filter-2-hp870-real
and make it like so:
/usr/sbin/dj550c-filter $* | lpr -Php870-real -U$5
You also need to do this:
chown lp.lp /var/spool/lpd/hp870-real
chmod 775 /var/spool/lpd/hp870-real
Then restart lpd and you should be in business!
