Hi, sometimes it isn't easy to get it done !
Beside of settings there can be a HW problem too !?

I struggled too long to find out that one of my new WL Printservers
being spoilt !!! ;-(

After changing to another identical (used) PS the printer worked !!! ;-)

My settings:

where, in my case, printername is either BJ or LJ to get to the
respective unit 
BJ=Canon BJc-6100 and LJ=HP LJ 1320 !

Well there are more settings available like ipp etc.

With HPLIP installed one get to CUPS and there is a good documentation
of what settings are all available / possible !

Try, try and retry !!!

Good luck and cheers, svobi
