First  am new using freebsd and would like help getting the printer 
configured. After installing and staarting CUPS. When I go to SETTINGS > 
Peripherals > printers I get:
Unable to retrieve the printer list. Error message received from manager:
Connection to CUPS server failed. Check that the CUPS server is correctly 
installed and running. Error: localhost: read failed (14).
If I use LPR/LPRng things seem to be going well until I get to the screen 
asking for URI:   I have no clue as to what it is asking for.
