It's not clear how that printer is connected.  If it's on the network 
itself, you should be able to send jobs directly to it.  If the printer 
is connected by USB or something else to the server, CUPS might still 
accept jobs from lpr.  (Untested, but it's a print server, after all.)

Network printing from printcap (among other things) is shown here:
