RH9 -> RH8 printer share... more newbie bumbling

Honest, I did try to find a discussion for this before posting.

I have an HP 970C printer attached to my RH9 desktop. It works fine.

On the same network I have a RH8 laptop which can ping and be pinged by IP and by name.

On the system with the printer I have set up a share on the print queue named hpdeskje. The share is set for All Hosts. The queue type is locally connected with the string /dev/lp0 Hewlett-Packard Deskjet 970C in the window below. All the other values in the configuration are default and I am using their recommended printer driver.

On the laptop (RH8) I have set up a printer to use a queue named hpdeskje of type Unix LPD. The server name in the proper case is in the Server field, and the Queue field also has hpdeskje in the proper case.

I can not make this contraption print. I have tried \\hostname, leaving the print queue field blank (which is supposed to cause the system to use the default print queue on the server), and have also plugged in the IP address of the printer host just for drill.

I'm sure this must be something simple.

Is there a kindly soul who can help with this?

Thanks in advance....

I have added a /etc/hosts.lpd file with the IP address of the laptop to the print host.

Still not working.
