Default Freebsd and Brother HL-2032 laser printer

hell-o ppl

I have been struggling for some time now with a Brother HL-2032 laser printer. tryed cups, afsfilter, but eventualy failed.
So I'm trying a diferent approach to the situation but need some help.

First of all, when I plug in the printer (usb) BSD "sees" it as ulpt0 in dev with rootperator own and 644 privileges (thats rw-r-r). Now first of all my printcap file has a single line like so:
that was leftover by cups. Now, assuming that's corect, should't
echo "whatever" >> /dev/ulpt0
print something? It just returns fine the prompt (meaning all worked well). Also tryed echo to unlpt0, but same efect.
On Windows the printer works fine but, I have a small network setup here and would benefit from the printer being conected to the bsd box, as it acts as a NAS, firewall, gateway and some other devilish things.
