Go to http://localhost:631/admin on each machine - you should only have
to do this once. Make sure all these check boxes are checked on the
machine with the printer attached:

Share published printers connected to this system Allow printing from
the Internet

Oho the Second : that need not mean some script kiddie can run my printer dry printing gibberish??

Not if your firewall is configured correctly, and by that I mean the
one facing the internet.  If you're not using a router/firewall combo
to the internet, then yes, you should add iptables entries that allow
your local network access to port 631, but not from the outside.

On every machine that you want to administer from another machine, make
sure the "Allow remote administration" box is checked. You may also have
to open port 631 in the firewall.

The boxes are checked; lst's hope I don't have to tinker with the firewalls.

On all the machines that do NOT have the printer attached, make sure the
"Show printers shared by other systems" box is checked.

Are you saying it should *not* be checked on the one *with* the printer??
