barricade cups setup issue

I configued cups on slackware 9.0 to use my deskjet 690c printer connected to a barricade 7004br. cups installed to printer correctly and tells me that I am completing print jobs to the printer, but I never see the print job. I think that it has to do with the printer.conf. Here is what I have:

# Printer configuration file for CUPS v1.1.17
# Written by cupsd on Fri Jul 25 05:48:35 2003
<DefaultPrinter dj690>
Info deskjet 690c
DeviceURI lpd://
State Idle
Accepting Yes
JobSheets none none
QuotaPeriod 0
PageLimit 0
KLimit 0

I have a feeling that it has something to do with the URI that I have setup. anybody that has set thisup have any pointer?
