I can't imagine that LPD port 515 is not supported by the printer; what 

telnet 515

gives? If this is timing out, I would rather think in firewall issue;

if you really need to print raw to port 9100, with CUPS you would
just configure it through CUPS' web inteface as


or on command line with

# lpadmin -U root -p myprinter -D '' -L '' -E -v  \
     'socket://' -P file.ppd
