Re: Trying to get a network printer HP LaserJet (tm) 2100tn to print from debian

SO I set it up as:
other printer (it said no IPP port 631 at host  ipp://
so I had to use other printer rather than ipp printer in the
add printer wizard).
and chose raw no driver.
It makes me wonder if there is a networking issue,
but I can telnet to the printer and bring up the printers
java control webpage.

So printing a test page just sits there
and never prints:
$ lpq -a
Rank    Owner   Job     File(s)                         Total Size
active  userjf 324     http://kerneltrap.org/Linux/Abu 672768 bytes

Still  can print from windows, but  not from debian.  weird.
any other ideas, suggestions?
