Seems OK to me:

PrinterName = sc65_66s
PrinterDevicePath = /dev/ulpt0
DummyDevicePath = /var/ekpd/ekplp0
CommandServerPort = 35586

The printer is on ulpt0:

ohci0: <SiS 5571 USB controller> mem 0xe2410000-0xe2410fff irq 11 at 
device 1.2 on pci0
usb0: OHCI version 1.0, legacy support
usb0: SMM does not respond, resetting
usb0: <SiS 5571 USB controller> on ohci0
usb0: USB revision 1.0
uhub0: SiS OHCI root hub, class 9/0, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 1
uhub0: 2 ports with 2 removable, self powered
ulpt0: EPSON USB Printer, rev 1.10/1.00, addr 2, iclass 7/1
