CUPS + command line


When I try printing from the command line to a printer that was configured by CUPS, I get this error message. How come? I've tried printing as a regular user and as root. The printer name that I configured CUPS with is lpr.

# lpr File.txt
Status Information, attempt 1 of 3:
sending job 'root@Downstairs+267' to lpr@localhost
connecting to 'localhost', attempt 1
cannot open connection to localhost - No such file or directory
Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol
Waiting 10 seconds before retry
