Network printer - HPJetDirect - DEBIAN 3.1r2

Hi, i'm trying to be able to print to my network printer. I have a station with DEBIAN 3.1r2 (O/S) and a printer that own an ethernet card with an IP addres..

I'm make sure the eth is up.. i use PING command to test my IP address... and is OK.

I install the CUPS packages and I have acces to my (http)
localhost:631 <-- where I ADD a printer...
BUT all of my test pages persist with a CANCELLED Status.

I Try different configurtion methods - socked, ipp and
have no clue why this problem occurs.

What i'm doing wrong??? thanks anticipated for any response..

you should be using something like this for an HP networked printer in Cups
Are you using the correct driver?
Sometimes if you do not find the exact driver in cups there is normal a generic driver that should atleast be able to print a text file.

Check they also sometimes have ppd files that you can import into CUPS.
