Did you try postscript printing with a2ps and LPD?
If the printer listens at TCP port 515, then I think
yo u are set. Make sure you have LPRng.
To test that, just try telnet <hp-printer-ip> 515 and
see if it connects.
If that goes thro' you only have to export a shell
variable and you can print.
export PRINTER=lp at hp-printer-ip
