Can't print to remote printer using LPRng


I have two Linux boxes in my home network, with a printer attached to one. Printing to the remote printer isn't working. When I enter 'lpq' I get (in addition to printer, queue and status info):
Code:
Printer '<printer name>@<remote machine name> - cannot open connection - Connection refused
.

I can print a file from the box with the printer attached, I just can't do the above. I've been working on this for about 3 days now, which means I know just about everything to do wrong.

Would anyone doing this type of printing be willing to share their printcap file? I'd just like to make sure my printcap file is OK first before delving more deeply into this. Of course, any other pearls of wisdom would be appreciated as well and I'll be happy to post more info if anyone would like to see it. Thanks in advance for any help.
