Eric,

If I were smart I would give up now and quit showing my ignorance by not 
being able to help you, but I'm not. ;-)  I've used network printers for 
years and have never had a problem.  I assume that the responses above are 
for lp1 and that you can ping 192.168.1.printer_ip and the mac is the 
correct one (want to be sure the packets are going where we think they are 
going.) netstat -nr will give you that one.  Unfortunately, these have 
always worked out of the box for me so I have no experience troubleshooting 
them.  The worst case for me has been that you need a windows box to set 
dhcp with propriatary software:)

sorry,

P.S. Did you try to print the test page from apsfilter?   Can the windows 
boxes access it through the ip?  (looking for the needle in the haystack.)
