Unable to print via lp in Solaris 9

I am setting up a new Solaris 9 v240 server.  I am trying to print to either a network (IP) or a serial printer.  Addressing the serial first, I am able to cat /etc/hosts > /dev/dty/b016s and the hosts file prints on the printer.   If I try to lp -dF1 /etc/hosts the file spools in lpstat but does not print.  If I run a lpstat -t is see the print job but also see the following.

printer F1 waiting for auto-retry.  available
          exec exit fault

Please Help.
