Printing from NT4.0 to Unix

I just installed NT Workstation 4.0 and happily noticed the feature that
claims to allow printing from my Pentium to a printer connected to a Unix
machine.

I installed the feature, configured a port as instructed in the help screens,
and I get a network error when I try to print.  Anyone know why?  I supply the
IP address of the unix box I'm trying to print to, and the name of the printer
attached to the unix box as defined in /etc/printcap ("ps"), when configuring
the port.

The unix box is running SunOS 4.1.3, and responds to lpr -Pps [filename] from
its own command line.  I also added my Pentium to its host list, so I can ping
the Win NT by name from the unix box.  Am I missing something?

Did you add your Pentium to the hosts.lpd file?
