Print Server "Network is unstable"
I am new to Ubuntu (64bit), although I have been programming since 1970. I am setting up my new Linux Machine (clean install on new disk). I am now trying to get my printing services working properly. On my home network I use a Ethernet to USB print server connected to my HP 5150 Deskjet. I have used System>Administration>Printing to set up a new printer using:
AppSocket/HP JetDirect option on port 9100.
It set up correctly but when I print the test page (which prints correctly) I get an additional printed page page saying:
"The network is unstable. The print server cannot receive any printing data." The printer then takes a while flashing its activity light until it times out.
I suspect that this may be a Firewall problem but I cannot workout how to Disable/Modify any firewall that UBUNTU has installed.
Any help with this problem would be appreciated.

i hav the same problem but mine is rather different,my case is that on my system which runs ubuntu 8.04 i cannot access the configure printers terminal,i.e. from the system=>administrator=>printing.
