Ok, here is the deal. Configure all the printers on the server. On the
clients do no configuration at all ,none. And you will be able to print
to all the printers. Any configuration you do on the clients will
undoubtedly screw things up. One exception. In the /etc/cups/client.conf
file you can fill in the ServerName line with the address of the server.
Leave the admin boxes alone.
