I assume that the network line is for the printer I want.  I tried 
plugging parts of it into the pladmin command and got this

[root at Vince2 vince]# lpadmin -p printerq -v 
-E -m everywhere
No such file or directory

[root at Vince2 vince]# lpadmin -p printerq -v 
-E -m everywhere
No such file or directory

[root at Vince2 vince]# lpadmin -p printerq -v 
<uuid=5ef4f4ab-373b-3f35-779d-b0bf9b462930> -E -m everywherebash: 
uuid=5ef4f4ab-373b-3f35-779d-b0bf9b462930: No such file or directory

What do I use as URI?

Thank you for the quick reply.
