Unless you've got PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS set, the rc.d scripts with the
package install into /usr/pkgsrc/share/examples/rc.d.  Look for
the rc.d script for cups (and other packages) there. (since I
never remember to set PKG_RCD_SCRIPTS, I end up installing them

-       lp|HP DeskJet 6940
- The pritner admin page shows
-       Description:    HP DeskJet 6940 series

-            Driver:    HP DeskJet 6940 Foomatic/hpijs (recommended)
-                       (color, 2-sided printing)

- There is no traffic to the printer socket (port 9100), and nothing 
- prints.

What happens when you try to send something directly to port

Have verified that the printer doesn't support either IPP or
LPD directly?  If it supports either of those, I would recommend
using those protocols over the TCP stream at port 9100.

        Worry is like a rocking chair: It gives you something to do,
                        but doesn't get you anywhere.
