canon bjc-80 printing problem

Hi all.

I've just installed rh 7.2 on a laptop with a canon bjc-80 connected by parallel port. I used printconf to set up the printer, but when I try to print with lpr I get:
Status Information:
sending job 'ws@localhost+577' to bjc80@localhost
connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
cannot open connection to localhost - Network is unreachable
Make sure LPD server is running on the server

I really don't understand enough yet to figure this out. Can anyone help?

Afterward I installed PDQ which prints directly to /dev/lp0, and am able to print, but only ascii text. Postscript files get aborted. I have no idea why.

Thanks to anyone who can help.
