Brother MFC printing through D-link port

Here i have a Brother MFC9180 printer which is connected to the network via a D-link DI704-P dialup modem/print server.

From Brother website, it says that this model supports only LPR priting, but not method. I downloaded the respective driver, and configure the /etc/printcap to be like this:

Linux09:/home/staff# cat /etc/printcap

where is the address of the Dlink DI704-P print server.
However, there is just no response on the computer, while the machine side says the printing command has been sent.

I have tried various why to get it working. but it simply does not work.

Could you suggest any means i can figure out this problem? Is that because the protocol problem? as i know this Dlink device is configured as to be used under Windows, because under windows pc, my collegue just uses "dlink LPT port' to do the print.
