It stops your CUPS server from advertising that the printer is
available to other machines. It does not help in the case of another
machine offering to share a printer, and you do not want it to show
on your machine.

Now, if you don't want CUPS to show printers connected to other
machines, there is a checkbox on the administration page, "Show
printers shared by other systems", that controls displaying printers
shared by other systems. I wounder if you could uncheck that, and
then manually add any network printers you want to use?
