WPS54GU2 printing to parallel printer with Windows 7 64-bit-cannot get it to work for the life of me

Hello,
I am having the worst difficulties getting the WPS54GU2 to print to a HP Laserjet 4L printer. I know that the general communication is working as I am able to print a test page from the 
I have the IP address correct for the print server (in my case it is 192.168.1.103) and is set statically in the print server setup.
I have it working fine on an XP box The port name configured on the XP machine is LK89A0B5_P1.
The software that comes with the WPS print server will not install on Windows 7 so the address/port/queue must
be set up manually.
I have tried the link from Cisco's KB that shows how to configure the print sever:
http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?vw=1&docid=69efd80e2ea44d948fea2365d3e0c9eb_Configuring_TCP_I...
however this does not work and the print job either gets stuck in the print queue, or it shows busy/error in the print queue.
I have also tried suggestions on this forum that say not to create a TCP/IP port but instead use LPR port.
Can someone please give me the solution that will work. I have heard people say to use L1 for the queue name, or P1, or LP1
or lp1. I cannot spend much more time on this before I give up and look for a different print server that will work with both parallel and USB printers.
Thanks for help/suggestions on this.
Mike

sometimes it needs the device- specific drivers to get it to work; especially that you have a 64- bit OS.
the print server is already connected to the network, right? what is its IP address? check if the computer can ping that IP by going to start> search> cmd> ping 192.168.1.78 (change this to the correct IP address). if your computer can ping the print server then you can setup LPR printing to get your printing jobs done. click on the link below for more info.
