What print spooler are you using? LPRng? When that is the case, you should do
something like this:

:rm=<ip address>:\

or, when JetDirect is supported:

:lp=<ip address>%9100:\

Please note that the "rp" option stand for "remote printer queue", that is,
the name of the printer queue on your target printer. Some printers can be
picky about this one (ie. HP 9850), but many (most?) are quite happy without
that option.
