Help with configuring printer on Sun Solaris

I have tried and tried again, to get an HP 4700dn laserjet printer to work on a GI Sun Solaris BOX. I have gone through and added the Printer server and IP to the Host file in the /etc folder and also added the printer ip and printer name itself. when I go to print something the printer shows up in the drop down menu. I can also ping the printer all day. the issue is when I do go to Print something, its not what I wanted printed. Not to mention it takes about 2 minutes for it to print what i did not want. the only thing I get is something like this:
Host: tais012svr
Class: tais012svr
Job: Java Printing

that is all that prints. it is quite frustrating and i have looked everywhere I even have used lpadmin and entered this:

lpadmin -p (Printername) -s (printername)

i am at odds ends here. can anyone help?

lpadmin -p testqueue -v /dev/printers/0 -A mail -n /usr/lib/lp/model/ppd/system/foomatic/HP/<your printer> 
-i /usr/lib/lp/model/standard_foomatic -o banner=never -o stty="-opost" -I postscript -u allow:all

enable testqueue

accept testqueue

that last bit of code, i tried that and i got this error:

/usr/sbin/lpadmin: illegal option -- n
UX:lpadmin: ERROR: unrecognized option "-n"

lpadmin -p testqueue -v /dev/printers/0 -A mail -n /usr/lib/lp/model/ppd/system/foomatic/HP/HP-Color_LaserJet_4700-Postscript.ppd.gz  /
    -i /usr/lib/lp/model/standard_foomatic -o banner=never -o stty="-opost" -I postscript -u allow:all

enable testqueue

when you must use -n not --

i redid the code and verified what i was typing. i still got the same error even when i used "-n" and not --n.
