Request help setting up IP printer w/Jetdirect card

I have an HP Laserjet 4000 series printer with a Jetdirect card configured
with an IP address and wish to print to it via a Linux box through our
office's 100BT LAN.

I took the /etc/printcap example from the printing HOWTO and attempted an
lpr -Pour-printer file-to-print

We don't have LPD running at the moment.

The result was from an lpc status:

	queuing is enabled
	printing is enabled
	1 entry in spool area
	no daemon present

lpq -Pour_printer yields:

our_printer: Warning: no daemon present
Rank	Owner	Job	Files			Total	Size
1st	root	0	file-to-print		12345	bytes

JetDirect lpd: no jobs queued on this port

So, do I simply need to enable lpd, or am I missing something else?
