I will continue to work on it ; any advice are welcome as I am a newbie on Linux.

I decided to do it at revers and hook up the printer to my Xubuntu Box, and try to connect with lpd on the Mac. No more success and same error with PHERP

On the Mac, the file is sent, but not printed, I don't know where it went. On PHERP when doing a test print, I got : LPD Error did not get ACK from LPD server Err =26

The solution was to downgrade the lpd service to 10.6.6 version using this script.
