Hmmm...well, it seems that I'm not doing something right...here are the steps I've been taking.
Jump into terminal -
lpadmin -d LaserJet

lpr -d LaserJet -o PaperSize=Letter /etc/motd
I get this:

connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
cannot open connection to localhost - No such file or directory
Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol
Waiting 10 seconds before retry

It seems like Cups talks to the printer just fine...but nothing talks to Cups.
