Can't print CentOS5.6 and Brother MFC 7440N printer


I have a Brother MFC-7440N network printer. I run CentOS 5.6. I installed the printer, CUPS is running, the computer sees the printer, but when I print nothing comes out and I get no error messages. I also have an HP2605DN on the network and it works fine. I have followed all the instructions from Brother. Any suggestions?

How is it connected? i.e. USB or ethernet.
What are you using for its URL?
If you have it connected as a network printer the url that worked for me was:
http://IP_address:631/ipp/port1

It has been awhile but I do not remember having any problems installing the drivers from Brother's website.
