On the print server (where the printer itself is actually located) add the following line to /etc/inetd.conf:

  printer stream tcp nowait lp /usr/lib/cups/daemon/cups-lpd cups-lpd

Then restart the inetd daemon:

  $ wajig stop inetd
  $ wajig start inetd

With newer versions of Debian there is no longer a /etc/init.d/inetd script for restarting the daemon. Instead:

  $ sudo service openbsd-inetd restart

From a client identify the printer as something like:

  lpd://kyral/psc2210
