Can you telnet from the laptop to port 631 of the server?   Do you have
cups installed on the laptop?  Can the laptop tell you the status of the
server print queue (run lpq -P<printqueuename> on the laptop)?  Are you
seeing any error messages on the server in /var/log/messages or
/var/log/cupsd/errorlog?
