I have a Richoh Aficio-CL3500N that I connected directly to the USB port and it seemed to add and configure itself and populated all fields in 'Printer Properties', but I received the error 'server-error-not-accepting-jobs'.

I actually figured this out while asking the question...

What I did to correct this was to go to 'Printer Properties > Policies > State' and checked both the boxes for 'Enable' and 'Accepting Jobs' and then that corrected the problem I was having.

Click on "Accept Jobs" in the printer's section on http:// localhost:631 (in the first drop-down selection)
