Hi Mike,

You didn't mention if this is a printer you have plugged into a TC via a
usb cable? If this is the case ( unless the new jetpipe piece in ltsp5
treats usb printers differently), you will need to add a config into the
lts.conf file for this printer> to the client.
Your lts.conf should have an entry that looks something like the
     PRINTER_0_DEVICE = /dev/usb/lp0
     PRINTER_0_TYPE   = u

Try this, reboot the TC go into the cups GUI and see if you are seeing a
'green' printer now?
Also from the server after rebooting the tc try and :
telnet <TCipaddress> 9100
See if you get a response.
See what you get with this.

Take Care,
Barry Cisna
