lpr: unable to print file: client-error-not-found

ON the home LAN I have 2 boxes. 'zulu' ( the print server which can print just fine. The other box 'cromag' ( cannot print to zulu with this error:

lpr -P file.txt

lpr: unable to print file: client-error-not-found

Network printing was working just fine until I did an apt-get upgrade (SID) on zulu.

Here's the relevant part of /etc/cups/cupsd.conf which was also working fine and was not overwritten during the upgrade BTW:

## Restrict access to local domain
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From
Allow From
#Encryption Required


# This file was automatically generated by cupsd(8) from the
# /etc/cups/printers.conf file. All changes to this file
# will be lost.

glenn@cromag:~$ lpstat -h zulu -p
printer HP is idle. enabled since Jan 01 00:00

I'm at a complete loss as to what to do next. Any ideas are very welcome. Thanks.
