Here is one of my printcap entries for a laserjet.  It works great.  Maybe 
if you compare them you will find the problem.

#    :rp=\
# APS1_END - don't delete this

A regular line printer that I use to print checks from another unix box  is:

cheques|Impresora para cheques:\
  :if=/usr/local/libexec/ \

I also have a line printer for accounting that has a wide carrage and it is.

lp|local line printer:\
# :rm=

All my windows machines can print to all as can the unix boxes.  I'm using 
three different brands of print servers, BTW.

I hope this helps,
