1.On the TC you have the HP<printer> connected to,via usb ,you will need
an entry in your lts.conf file so that the TC detects the printer at
boot up.
2. You should have this TC setup with a static Ip for sure.
3. (lts.conf  entry;


MODULE_01         =  usblp
PRINTER_0_DEVICE  =  /dev/usb/lp0

Now when the TC boots up at the end of the rolling text ,before Xconfig
hits you should see "printer HP<printer> connected via usb".
Also it does not make any difference if this TC has usb1.1 or usb2.0
Your entries in the CUPS config looks correct. The TC (& K12LTSP
server), simply is not detecting the usb attached printer at bootup.
You can of course use this printer from any of the TC's in the lab to
print to as well ( providing this TC is turned on),,,:).

Take Care,
