He does mention that he did this.  But he doesn't mention how the
printer is connected to his machine.  "Connection refused" usually means
that something was alive at the IP address being touched but nothing was
listening at the port being used.  If the printer was a network printer,
for example, he might have chosen the wrong protocol and be trying to
touch, say, port 9100 when the printer is not listening there.

Have a look in the cups error log at /var/log/cups/error_log and see if
there is more info, and confirm that cups is still running

ps -Af | grep cupsd
