The odd thing is that another system (Jetway 603TCF mainboard) DOES print
correctly in EPP mode, so I don't think it is a cable issue, but it displays
the modes exactly as above, i.e. EPP is detected (and appears to work) but
ECP mode is not detected and ECP+EPP mode gets confused and just becomes

Yes, my setup actually makes the default printer a Postscript file, but I
also tried using the Epson 480 driver to create a printer dump and this
worked fine and was very fast (the file was full size in under a second), so
I don't think it is a CUPS issue. I will also try confirming where the
problem is by sending the dump to the printer as a raw file.
Thanks for the pointers and I'll let you know how I get on.
