Raspberry pi printing only through /dev/usb/lp0

Hi I'm trying to usea Raspberry pi as a print server running Raspbian.

I followed the instructions for my HP CP1025 here:

I can see the printer from the newtwork (using Ubuntu) and I can start new jobs (and cancel them) from there, however the printer never prints.

I can't even print if I ssh into the raspberry pi and type "lp somefile". lp will return something like "request id is HP_LaserJet_CP1025_PI-64 (1 file(s))" and do nothing.

The only way I got the printer to actually print is by generating a test page

foo2zjs-wrapper -P -z3 -L0 -X16 testpage.ps > test.prn

and by copying it directly to /dev/usb/lp0

cp test.prn /dev/usb/lp0

NOTE: netcat doesn't seem to work either

Help would be very welcome.
