iPrint encountered a problem trying to retrieve information from the printer

When i try and install a printer from both Safari and Camino i get the error message "iPrint
encountered a problem trying to retrieve information from the printer"

I found a hidden file called error.txt in ~/.iPrint inside this where a number of repeating errors

Thu May 17 12:14:40 2007
Trace Info: iprint.c, line 6149
Group Info: IPRINT-lib
Error Code: 4096 (0x1000)
User ID: 501
Error Msg: iPrint Lib - Bad URI type supplied (not IPP:, HTTP:, or HTTPS:).
Debug Msg: IPRINTInterpretURI for pdf800://distiller/ - Unknown Port Type - pdf800

So i uninstalled all of my other printers and iprint and restarted and reinstalled iPrint then I
reinstalled iPrint and now i have a different repeating error

Thu May 17 15:12:08 2007
Trace Info: iprint.c, line 690
Group Info: CLIB
Error Code: 22 (0x16)
User ID: 501
Error Msg: Invalid argument
Debug Msg: IPRINTCreateRequest - httpConnect to ipp://shefuniprt/ipp/4100 failed (22)

Any ideas to solve this problem.

My guess is that the original thread never got a reply because it was
singularly lacking any kind of information about the client and server
Oses and software versions being used. The message just vaguely suggests
it might be Macintosh related.
Now for your message, I don't know if you just want to comment on the lack
of replies in that original thread or if you want to report a problem.
However in case your intention is to report a problem, you should do this
with as much information is possible, the least information being the
client and server OS types and versions being used and some information on
the errors your get and the exact circumstances in which the errors occur.
I also suggest you do this in a new thread, because in case you have have
a problem with a iPrint on a Mac workstation, then it won't be me who
gives you a reply and others might not even look at the read because it is
already being dealt with by others.
