LPD printing to port other than 515

How can I get CUPS to printer to a printer using LPD protocol and the LPD protocol is not on port 515? JetDirect can specify the port via socket://ip:9101 with lpd the same doesn't work. lpd://ip:9515/port. Anyone have any ideas how to change the port CUPS uses when communicating with a particular LPD printer.

Did you try using the lpadmin command (just a guess)?

lpadmin -p <printer name> -v socket://<ip addy>ort# -P /etc/cups/ppd/<printer name>.ppd -E

Then enable it and set it to accept requests.
