Hi All

Thank you everyone for your help as a result of combined efforts I have 
finally succeeded in getting cups the server to communicate with the printer 
and print. 
HOWEVER!!

One minor niggling problem remains. I cannot communicate with the cups 
management interface on http://localhost:631 due to password authentication 
failure. I try logging in as 'root' with correct root password in the login 
dialogue.

I altered the loglevel to debug and the output is at the end of the email.

It seems as though the cupsd is not receiving the input (probably due to some 
config error on my part!). I have tried using a number of different browsers 
but get the same result.

Prior to testing I did:

dns1# lppasswd -g wheel -a root
The standard cups error log showed
cupsdAuthorize: pam_start() returned 4 (system error)!

So I raised the loglevel to debug and got the results shown further down.

All the configuration has been done manually.
I restarted cupsd with:

dns1# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/cupsd restart
Stopping cupsd.
Starting cupsd.

 The HP JetDirect Configuration report includes the following info:
