I am trying to setup a new Windows Server 2008 print server, and I can print just fine from OS X via SMB, but I cannot print via LPD. We have a lot of clients currently setup to print via LPD to our Windows Server 2003 print server, and I would like the transition to be as smooth as possible. When I print from my Mac to the print server with via LPD (lpd://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/CIT
03p), I see the following error in the System log:
Log Name: System

Task Category: None
The Line Printer Daemon (LPD) service refused a print job from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx for printer \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\CIT03p because the specified printer does not exist on this computer. Retry printing from the client using the correct printer name.

I have tried changing the queue from Standard TCP/IP using RAW on port 9100 to LPR on port 515, and have even tried installing the LPR Port Monitor and using that, but I get the same result every time. I would appreciate any suggestions.
