problems connecting laserjet 4M printer with ethernet

Today I plugged an ethernet cord into the router and printer.

The printer is found under: applications > administration > printing > HP-Laserjet-4M

Clicking this icon brings up Printer Properties, but the printer is not yet connecting with the printer.

I could use some suggestions on changing the Device URI from parallel to ethernet.

So far I have tried: socket://---ip#---:9100 ... but the screen keeps reverting back to parallel.

The terminal is not working -- I will need to upgrade the os.

Thanks very much.

Update: The Device URI now shows: socket://---ip#---:9100 ... but still won't print a test page.

I don't know if the :9100 is correct, I just saw that somewhere and added it on.
