okay. Some progress.
I was able to add a new printer using Lynx. At that point, I had two printers on CUPS: Canon_LBP6000 (added by following the Canon driver instruction) and LBP6000 (added manually using your instruction). I don't have an auto_detected one.

Then I do ccpdadmin -x Canon_LBP6000, restart ccpd, use ccpdadmin -p LBP6000 -o /dev/usb/lp0

CUPS still shows 2 printers. I tried printing a test page on LBP6000, nothing happened. Jobs shows the job was completed though.

lpstat -p reports 2 printers.

At least no errors when submitting the job. Remember to do everything from the server, no ssh.

If you added the Canon_LBP6000 using the Canon driver instructions, then the two printers, ie: Canon_LBP6000 and LBP6000 are both using /dev/usb/;lp0 and port 59687. They are conflicting. Try deleting the Canon_LBP6000.

After deleting, lpstat and ccpdadmin should only should one printer, ie::LBP6000. After deleting the printer, restart ccpd and try printing again.

After removing Canon_LBP6000, I am now getting connection refused again.

Well, I think I am going to give up on making it work as a server printer. I can live with printing it locally for now.

One more thing. When you said to do it from the server, not ssh. What's the difference? I though ssh into the server is equivalent to doing it directly on the server.

Yeah it should be, but I saw quite a few posts around the net where others were having problems with the CUPS interface over ssh. Something about port-forwarding. I only used ssh in the past for accessing my machine remotely from my phone but had quite a few attempted exploits on Port 22 of my router so I closed off the port. It's actually quite a pain trying to do anything from the CLI of a phone. A tablet probably, not a phone.

Well back to the printer, I'm also now getting some problems. After a few hours, if I try to print, it does not. I have to delete the printer, restart ccpd for it to work again. When it prints, it works great. Will try to figure it out during the week. Gotta finish my PCB and order a new toner cartridge. The starter cartridge that came with the printer is almost at the 150 print mark from all the testing.

I know you said you have given up. Also you were able to send the test page without any errors on your last try.

I came across something, thought I'd share. In a nutshell, the test page is a banner and may require the cups-filter package. Do you have this package installed?

Both foomatic-filters and ghostscript-cups were installed prior to the Canon printer driver.
