Strange that you have 2 entries. On the machines without the
printer, you should be using the on that has:
Device URI: ipp://<something>

You may have to make the changes I listed in another e-mail - the
one describing what checkboxes to make sure are checked.

On the machine with the printer attached, try printing a test page
on each printer, and see what works best. Set that as the default,
and remove the other printer. Then move on the setting the other
versions of CUPS. You should be able to administer all the CUPS
setups from one machine, and you should see an ipp:// printer on all
the machines that do not have a printer attached.

Once you have things working the way you want, you should be able to
delete all the usb://hp/psc%201310%20series?serial=CN4AIC71YKO2 and
the  hp:/usb/psc_1310_series?serial=CN4AIC71YKO2 entry on all except
the machine with the printer attached.
