There you are! CUPS sees all four print queues shared by coyote. At this
stage we are golden. Note that all four are designated as "network".

This is a manual queue (permanent) set up locally on bpi51. It isn't of any
further interest.

You may care to take note that 'lpstat -a' and 'lpstat -t' only show local
printers (permanent) and not those that are on the network. That also goes
for the Printers section at localhost:631.

Local printers can also be auto-setup by cups-browsed. You do not have it
installed/running. Thar's OK; there isn't any obligation (or for that matter,
any need) to use it. Having mentioned it, we will now completely put it out
of our minds.

sudo lpinfo -v

Your printing situation appears to be a sane one, so now for a test. Do

  lp -d HLL2320D_coyote ANY_FILE_YOU_WANT
