HP Printer without SMC, Admintool, or Jetadmin

Jetadmin fails saying that it is not a network printer despite the fact that it is and can be pinged from UNIX.

I am administering this remotely (long remote, I can't go there soon) and can't run smc or admintool.

Any help configuring this spooler would be appreciated.

For printing to work you should be able to telnet to the printer's IP address specifying TPC/IP port 515 (lpd), compare the result with a local, working printer, you should connect proving that the printer is listening on port 515, if not then the HP Jetdirect card is not working properly in the printer.
