One thing for Gilles to check is if the printer is indeed exported as a
Shared Printer. Perhaps it's enabled for LPR access, but not as a
network share? Remote chance that this is the case..
Gilles: can you access the printer by just doing:
cat somefile.txt > //mimosa/glaeiul
cat somefile.txt > '\\mimose\glaeiul'
(If it at least makes the printer lights blink, you know that the share
is available and valid. If not, you may want to check the printer share
