You probably have from what I have read in my
countless hours googling this problem that notation
worhed through cups 1.1.19. But try it now (under a
later version ) and I believe you'll find that it no
longer does. Fedora Core 3 comes with cups-1.1.22.

I'm 95% sure it's lpr-protocol which I am sorely

Well it can talk to an lpr printer after some
configuring. However, the lpr -P notation flat out
does not work.

Well, I guess I'm a bad developer because in my code
my print commands are.
system("lpr -P lp at 192.168.0.4 document1");
I'm considering replacing those w/ calls to a print
module that I would write that would determine what
exact systax to use ( how to print ) depending if the
client is running LPRng or cups.
I would rather use my time elsewhere and I wish LPRng
were still viable under Fedora ( maybe it is with
other distros ) but that does not seem to be the case.
Nevertheless, thanks for your input Martin.
