Well three comments.
1. The above URI does not work for me in the CUPS web interface or in
system-config-printer. In each case it says this is a bad device
description. Which did you use?

2. When I got it to work previously I did not include a passwd.Which
seems very insecure to me.

3. When setting it up what type of URI did your say this was? LPD, IPP,
or what?
