LPD not working on NT40!!!

I am trying to print from a HP9000 box(HP-UX) to a NT4.0 printer.  TCP/IP print services is running on the NT4.0 box.  I can send a print job from the UNIX box no problem but the NT printer does NOT print anything.  My UNIX box even sees the LPD daemon(lpstat) on the NT4.0 box.  Please help!!!  Any input will be greatly appreciated.

1. I made sure /spooler and /printer directories have full control perm enabled for everyone
2. When I do a "lp" command from the HP-UX box this what I see in the event viewer(NT):

-Request for unsupported print format received from root : job may not print correctly.

-Document 66, neil owned by root (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) was printed on Okidata via port LPT1:.  Size in bytes: 25; pages printed: 1

-Nothing prints!!!!!
Thanks in advance
