Just one thought, if jetpipe is working for usb printers and not parallel ones. You might have to tell the client to load the parallel port module. IIRC, parallel port drives don't just load automatically like usb/usb printers. I  could be remembering this wrong, but you should make sure that the parallel driver is loading.
