Dear Sir or Madam,

I am trying to use my Epson Stylus Color 600 printer as a network printer
running off my FreeBSD (version 5.1) server.  The printer works fine, via
the parallel port, on Windows 98.  Why, when I move the cable to the FreeBSD
server and execute a lptest > /dev/lpt0 do I only get a /dev/lpt0: Device
busy. response.  What do I have to do to make the device not busy?
