Both TCP and UDP ports 631 are open, on both machines.

Yes it is on by default.  Double checked before replying and it is on.
system-config-printer probes for any existing printers first then
provides an installation page with several options.  One option is HPLIP
which I tried.  It says it can't find a printer.  (Actually I tried all
the options -- none seemed to work).  

I have had remote printing working before with different printers and
different OSes.
