I have this in my /etc/devfs.rules file on a system successfully using
CUPS with a parallel port printer:
add path 'lpt*' mode 0660 group cups
(I also have 'devfs_system_ruleset="localrules"' in my /etc/rc.conf
That makes sure that CUPS can access the lpt* devices (including the
lpt*.ctl devices). Mode 0660 also ensures that not everyone can access
lpt*, just root and members of the cups group (i.e., CUPS).
