I'm assuming the 'dn' on the end means that this printer has an LAN

In a terminal, can you do:

telnet dhcppc0 9100

If that works, then the printer seems to be set up correctly.  If you
get 'unknown host', then you probably need to change the 'host' field
to the IP address (or add dhcppc0 to /etc/hosts).  Try 'telnet 9100' to make sure it's the right IP.
