I came across something similar that may be your case. The iSeries used LPR/LPD in an environment with firewall.
The firewall allowed for the LPD port, but was configured to reject "low ports" (< 1024) coming out of the iSeries.
For some strange reason the iSeries LPR client open port <1024 and did not make it, so I would recommend to try and recheck firewall configuration.
