Sorry to be so long replying again. My Internet connection was down for
a few more days and I've been busy.
1. Yes, I restarted cups
2. I'm not seeing any errors described in the error log. It always
shows the jobs as "completed".
3. Yes, there is a firewall active (Firestarter)
4. I did have the "location" set to /dev/lp0. I've tried changing that
to lp-cups or lpr-cups and it still is not printing.
I guess I'm not sure what settings I'm supposed to put where; I've
always just used /dev/lp0 before and it worked. Also, I've been
plugging in different drivers to see if I could get anything to work
(e.g. CUPS+GIMP-PRINT and also ESP PrintPro)
