Well, you really should telnet to port 9100 which is the jetdirect port.....

But, if the connection were reaching the printer and the printer port isn't being used you'd get....

telnet: connect to address 192.168.0.195: Connection refused

telnet: connect to address 192.168.1.67: No route to host   indicates a network issue of some sort.  It could be a firewall issue on the fedora side.  However, outbound connections aren't normally blocked.
