Thanks. My printer is attached straight to the network (RJ-45), but I check /var/db/pkg, and saw no mention of cups-pdf or cups-pstoraster, so I am installing those...
I'll try setting up my printer when I get home. Thanks, -Jim Stapleton On 4/22/07, Jared Barneck <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:

Funny you should post about this problem... I have an HP Laserjet 5L. It connects via parallel port to my wifes windows XP box. I was trying to point to it and I kept getting that same error. I only had cups-base installed and no other cups ports. To attempt to fix it I did the following: 1. I made sure these three ports were installed. cups-base-1.2.2 The Common UNIX Printing System cups-pdf-2.4.5 A virtual printer for CUPS to produce PDF files cups-pstoraster-8.15.4 Postscript interpreter for CUPS printing to non-PS printers 2. I added the windows box to the host file 3. I restarted cupsd. 4. Deleted the printer and readded it. It started working. I am not sure which step fixed it. > > I couldn't find anything when googling with FreeBSD in my search.
