Why a raw queue?  I think you just need the one queue, and set it shared.

On the laptop, or any client, there is no need to set a queue up.
Just enable remote queue browsing ("Automatically find remote shared
queues") with the Printing tool from the menu, and print directly to
those queues by name.

For simple situations like this there is no need to use the web GUI.
The graphical tool is meant to be a simple replacement, covering the
most often-used functionality. (I'm aware there are large gaps for
more sophisticated needs.)
