Not necessarily. This case is somewhat special. Are you saying you want
that printer available to all the client machines. To do that you need
to read very carefully the document on the web interface concerning
configuring cupsd.conf. Otherwise , you probably will not to be able to
print to that printer from the machine it is attached to. If you tell me
it is printing to that machine as well as the other machines you have
lucked out.
