In my experience the queue name is the same as the name of the printer.
Where did you get the queue name: PSE6D76B ?

He is using a print server with a printer attached.

Are you using the CUPS web interface? Or another program? My
instructions are for using the CUPS web interface.
(http://localhost:631) I downloaded the manual for your print
server. While it is not too clear, I suspect you need something like
this for Linux printing:

ldp://192.168.1.3/L1

It looks like it used a different queue name for lpd printing.

If that is true then no configuration of the printer on the local
machine is required since the Print Server should broadcast that
information. As long as they are the same lan the address of the Print
Server should not be needed on the local machine, however it could be
filled in on the clients.conf file on the local machine.

It would if it supported IPP. But this model does not. (I downloaded
the manual.) ALso, you would still have to set the printer model
because it doesn't look like this model sends that information.

It it looks like that queue name is for Windows printing, and it
should be L1 for LPD use. I had to get the PS100 series manual to
find that. If you have one of the multi-port models, you can have L2
and L3 as well. On the other hand, the PS101 manual talks about
being able to configure logical ports, so it makes me wounder if you
can have more then one print queue with different processing
depending on the logical port. But it looks like mainly the header
after the print job and cr/lf translation are all you can set.

I would not mind having one to play with, but I am not sure I would
buy one for my own use. I like network printers better.
