LPD won't run...(515/tcp port)


I can't print anything on my usb Epson printer
although the module configuration for USB is right
(printer detected by 'usbview').

My computer has no internet connection and I don't know anything about
network. But I've seen things while building a kernel telling me
I needed an internet protocol.
That makes me think I may have got a network configuration problem all the same.


First, when installing the lprng package (woody) :
------
debian:/home/jeancharles# apt-get install lprng
(...)
Dépaquetage de lprng (à partir de .../lprng/lprng_3.8.10-1_i386.deb) ...
Paramétrage de lprng (3.8.10-1) ...
Starting printer spooler: Fatal error - Cannot bind to lpd port '515'
(...)
--------------------


'echo $HOSTNAME' gives me
------
$ echo $HOSTNAME
debian
$ cat /etc/hostname
debian
--------------------

Part of my /etc/hosts file
------
127.0.0.1 debian localhost
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
--------------------

Reproduce the error :
------
# /etc/init.d/lprng stop
Stopping printer spooler: start-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 26311: \
No such process
lprng.
# /etc/init.d/lprng start
Starting printer spooler: Fatal error - Cannot bind to lpd port '515'
--------------------

No one is listenning to port 515 :
------
# netstat -an |grep 515
--------------------

Normal configuration :
------
# grep printer /etc/inetd.conf
# grep "515/" /etc/services
printer 515/tcp spooler # line printer spooler
--------------------


lpq :
------
# lpq
Printer 'lp@localhost' - cannot open connection - Aucun fichier ou \
répertoire de ce type
Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol
--------------------

I did configure my printer with apsfilterconfig, then
------
# checkpc -f
--------------------


Here is also what cups tells me
('apt-get --purge remove lprng', then 'apt-get install cups')
------
# cat /var/log/cups/error_log
I [06/Nov/2003:19:54:27 +0100] Listening to 0:631
I [06/Nov/2003:19:54:27 +0100] Configured for up to 100 clients.
I [06/Nov/2003:19:54:27 +0100] LoadPPDs: Wrote "/etc/cups/ppds.dat", 12 PPDs...
E [06/Nov/2003:19:54:27 +0100] StartListening: Unable to open \
listen socket \- Famille d'adresses non supportée par le protocole.
--------------------



I also just saw a trick in this forum I had no time to try :
<<edit your /etc/service and change 515 to 516 (usually 516 is idle)>>
Why ?

Since last summer, when I moved from Mandrake to Debian Woody,
I can't print.

But I hope I can soon :
I realized that I forgot to compile my kernel with the option IP...
(Thouhg I have no internet connection - and I knew I had to tick this one! )

Now, I have new messages and I still can't print :
