The only difference between your entry and mine is the rp that I commented 
out for some reason that I don't remember right now.  I assume that you get 
no errors.

What do

#  lpc status lp1
#  lpc restart lp1

give you?  I get:

# lpc status lp
        queuing is enabled
        printing is enabled
        no entries in spool area
        printer idle

# lpc restart lp
        no daemon to abort
        printing enabled
        daemon restarted

I'm just guessing now.  I have no idea unless one of the above commands 
gives you an error.  The only thing that bothers me is the rp entry that I 
commented out and on another box I ended up with rp=raw.

Good luck,
