Default Printing - CUPS and Canon laser printer

I have a Canon LPB7200Cdn printer connected to the home network and am
trying to get printing going on Lenny:

rob@debian:~$ uname -a
Linux debian 2.6.26-2-686 #1 SMP Thu Sep 16 19:35:51 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

Canon have .deb files for use with CUPS on their web site for this
printer and they install OK using dpkg (they require ghostscript,
which is also installed). The printer is picked up on the network by
CUPS, it gets the ppd files fine and seems to install the printer into
CUPS just as you would hope.

But, nothing prints from debian, Windows computers have no trouble.
CUPS (http://localhost:631) shows "printing since..." but nothing
appears. Not the test page from CUPS, nor anything from any
application. The printer itself can be accessed from debian and shows
no jobs waiting or processing. I'm new to debian (from BDS) and am
not sure where to even look for error messages. Any help would be
much appreciated.

Thank you.

What is your Connection set to (http://localhost:631/printers
then click on your printer)? I have seen similar with ipp
so try lpd instead if you not.
