If it's of any help at all, I'm using a Brother HL2070N as a network printer with
Centos 5. I've set it up as an ipp printer using the centos (RH) gui print
config tool, and it works fine for me.o

Here's the entry from /etc/cups/printers.conf:

<DefaultPrinter brother-HL2070N-net>
Info network access to brother printer in bedroom
Location bedroom
DeviceURI ipp://
State Idle
StateTime 1199233224
Accepting Yes
Shared Yes
JobSheets none none
QuotaPeriod 0
PageLimit 0
KLimit 0
OpPolicy default
ErrorPolicy stop-printer

I'm using the default printer driver that is offered by system-config-printer.
