Epson c82 printer and CUPS

ok, i have a stylus c82, clackware 9.0 with upgraded packeges, and vanilla 2.6.4 i have followed the instructions above and when i try http://localhost:631 i get a "Not Found
The requested resource was not found on this server." or if i go to it just times out,or if i try it asks me for user and pass then it times out.
Im postitive cupsd is running cause i did a "ps ax".

when i run "lpc status" reports :

printer is on device 'parallel' speed -1
queuing is enabled
printing is enabled
no entries
daemon present

i have configured this printer using kcontrol, if i hit test after printer configuration it says that "test page has benn successfully sent to the printer" but nothing happens, when i open txt file in kedit for example and hit print it says printing really fast but does nothing, then when i check "lpc status" it reports :

printer is on device 'parallel' speed -1
queuing is enabled
printing is enabled
no entries
daemon present

again as if no request was sent. I also tried printing in gimp, it only works if i select one of the Epson Stylus drivers in the printer setup box, but the picture comes out really shitty.

does anyone have any idea as to why cups is not responding to any queing requests.
