Printer issue on FreeBSD

I had a a print server power supply burn out and took the HD and
motherboard board with it. The box I replaced it with took the install
of Manolis 8.0 Release DVD ok for the base and I used portsnap to bring
apfilter on board. Thats all there is on it.
/etc hosts lists all boxes that were served by the old box (see below)
and I am using the same server IP 192.168.1.50.
host3.intra .net 192.168.1.35
wireless_host. 192.168.1.2 (linux laptop not on printer but on the lan)
The FreeBSD worked fine on the box that burned up.
Printer is HP laserjet1100
Settings in /etc/printcap (on the server)
This all prints ok test from the server using command line lpr -P
This does not work from any other hosts on the lan as it used to on the
old server. (not working from xorg or text from command line on the
hosts on the line to be clear.)
I can ping from box to box and can use ftp to print from the server by
sending a text file to it from the other hosts on the lan.
Any help appreciated.
