[cups.general] printing from /dev/ttyUSB1 ??

Expansion on my previous question.

According to the manpage for lp, in cups-1.3.7, fedora 8 system, this should 

cat /dev/ttyUSB1 | lp -d lp3 -

I now have, after writing a quicky program on the source machine to send a 
directory listing up through /dev/ttyUSB1 every 2 minutes for 11 passes, a 
hash number named file in /tmp, of a bit over 100k.  But the printer remains 

The printer works, I can send it a cups test page and it prints well and very 
fast. Rechecked right now, worked.

What am I doing wrong?

Cheers, Gene
