After having discovered Gimp-print as the solution to connectivity
problems I downlaoded and installed it. I was able to make the
connection and successfully print via USB. However, on the network
(Ethernet) mode I can set up the printer, but when I send a docuemtn to
print nothing happens - I get a message of "looking for printer." Any
ideas on what's going on here?

Here's the relevant section of my /etc/cupsd.conf. See cupsd.conf(5)
and the CUPS administrator's manual, and adjust to suit your needs.
# You definitely will want to limit access to the administration
