Thanks. I've tried just about every combination, and in all cases I get this:
1) A KDE notificaition that the printer may not be connected every few seconds.
2) Cannot print test pages in the CUPS web control panel.

$ nmap -P0 -p80,515,631

Starting Nmap 4.76 ( ) at 2009-05-05 23:34 IDT
Interesting ports on dir-320 (
80/tcp  open   http
515/tcp open   printer
631/tcp closed ipp

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.13 seconds

I suppose that "printer" may be LPD but I cannot get that to work.
Also, note that the device is called "dir-320" which was the first
name given to that printer, but it has long since been deleted and in
reconfiguring I gave the printer a different name.
