Downloaded the Brother drivers for the printer and CUPS wrapper and did the rpm install as in the directions on the brother site. All worked well and had no errors. I used CUPS to define the printer. 
Used lpd://192/168/1/50/binary_p1 in the Device URI. 

Tried the print test page...never get a thing. 

What's the next PD sequence of moves to try and understand where its not working. Standard ping of the printer works. 

Is it worth doing a rpm e <package> and trying again.

I am reinstalling my Brother MFC


What is the exact problem with reinstalling the Brother MPC?
Is it the printer driver or the cable connection?
To install the printer drivers, just insert the CD that came with the printer into your computer and follow the on screen instructions.
