HOWTO: fix iPrint/NDPS printing to newer HP Jetdirect printers?

I seem to run into this often. Thanks a lot HP.

Symptom: NDPS manager cannot communicate with an IP printer, although you can ping it.

Solution: change the gateway line to the following:

NDPSGW PORT=RAW HOSTADDRESS=<printer IP>

instead of

NDPSGW PORT=LPR HOSTADDRESS=<printer IP> PRINTERNAME=ra

It is because of http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=c00605333
