printtool v.3.27 attempted to configure printcap to allow remote printing on HPLJ4. Remote host complained 'no such printer'. I manually edited printcap (after saving a copy) and got lucky as follows: printcap, in part, read: :rm=spirit:\ :rp=/var/spool/lpd/lp/:\ I committed the following change: :rm=:spirit:\ :lp=:rm:lp:\ and printing worked as if printer was local to sending host.

This was a problem with the installer of 5.1. It has been fixed in the new installer with 5.2. You either upgrade to 5.2 or manually swap them as you have already done.
