In our opion: use LPRng. We like cups, but we have had several time 
consuming problems with cups. We also don't use the "old" BSD 
lpr/lpd services. 

We choose the combination LPRng and raw tcpip on port 9100 
(jetdirect). This gives bidirectional communication between printer and 
server. Very useful, good debugging information.
