Print through print server

I had been printing from Linux to an HP LJ 4P using the hpijs driver using a SMB connection through a Win98 box acting as a print server. The Win98 box crashed and I bought a NetGear PS101v2 and it works fine from my WinXP box. I set the PS101 with a static IP (host, subnet mask, gateway to simplify connections.

After reading this post and others I’ve connected to the PS101 in Linux using both Ubuntu and Kubuntu 7.04 fine using several connection types: LPD URI lpd://, IPP URI ipp://, and direct socket connection URI socket:// I’ve also tried several drivers: hpijs and ljet4.

I’ve looked at the files etc/cups/printers.conf and etc/cups/cupsd.conf and they look as expected. I’ve connected to the CUPS app using http://localhost:631 and it looks good from there.

This is my printers.conf:
