D-Link router print server

I am trying to use a D-LINK DI-704UP router as a print server but it will not work with Linux.

All I get from D-LINK is :

The D-Link router is a port redirector. For Linux you should be printing to the
IP of the router (192.168.0.1) and the port named lp (lower-case L and P).

I'm pretty sure this can be done if I knew what to do.

If it uses LPD
then set it up in printcap.
You can set up printers for use of LPD using the ip and port.
Then you will have a printer name. and you can cat files to the printer etc.

You need to set up your printer in linux. Depends what version of linux you are using.. Cups or printcap are used to set up printers.

Yes, I know that. I am trying to print with a D-LINK 704UP router as a print server.
That is what I need to know how to do.
How do I connect to a port name?

I figured it out myself.
Use networked unix LPD.
Print to the address and port lp.
