AFAIK, the CUPS API currently handles all network errors by retrying
or aborting as appropriate.  Any hard network errors are usually
mapped to IPP_SERVICE_UNAVAILABLE - check httpError() for the low-
level socket error code (use strerror() to display a human-readable
error message).

More than likely you are running into an unrecoverable network error.
