Well, in my defense I *did* download and read through that document. I 
just did not (and still do not) completely understand everything in it. 
I'm hoping I can get some help here.

I tried setting it up as a socket on port 9100, which one person 
(Terrell Prude Jr.) suggested worked great for him. For me, not so much, 
that is what gave me the "broken pipe" error. I then tried doing what 
the manual suggested, using the URL "lpd://", and 
the error I get now is "/usr/lib/cups/backend/lpd failed". Now, there is 
some kind of executable file, looks like a binary, at this location, so 
it is not a missing file kind of problem. I suspect I am probably 
overlooking something that is probably obvious to more experienced 
people like you, but I don't know what it is. So I am asking for some help.

Thank you,
