remote printing

Actually i am having a Epson printer and i can print from a local machine.
It is connected to the USB port.But i could not print from a remote machine. While configuring i have used these settings.

Tool used: redhat-config-printer (in)

Server machine
Queue Name : printer
Cups is running on this machine
Printer Type : Epson C41 series.
Print is shared

Client machine
Tool used: redhat-config-printer (In X)
Queue Name: printer (same as on the machine on which the
printer is attached)
Printing Type: Networked CUPS
Server address: Sure that the address that i have given is correct
Path : printers/printer

I am confused about the path .
After applying the changes , the message that come while i try to print is "Server is busy , retrying in 30 seconds' .
I am not able to track out the problem .Please somebody help me. Do i have to edit the CUPs configuration file and also how to set the correct path.
Somebody please guide me.
