CUPS refuses to print to printer


I have installed an Epson AL-C1900 on my Debian Lenny install (using Gnome interface/installer), everything went smoothly and there are supported drivers for this particular model. However when I try to print to it, the list of print jobs comes up with the state listed as "Pending: printer-stopped". If I look at the CUPS configurations for this printer (localhost:631), there is an error message:

"/usr/lib/cups/backend/http failed"

CUPS' error log with debug enabled shows nothing out of the ordinary:

Code:

... and the last 4-5 lines repeat themselves every second or so. I have searched my ass off over this and can't find anything that could be the problem... suggestions?
