Admin cups

Well I just got another computer, a PIII 533MHz system. I am not running xorg on it, I am just planning to turn it into a samba and a cups server, to play with it. I can connect to the cups @localhost, but I want to connect from another computer. I am already able to connect to swat from my other computer on my lan, but when I try to connect to cups via , I get a 403 forbidden error. This is the portion of cupsd.conf for allow/deny. Perhaps I didn't set it up correctly? Any clues?
<Location /admin>
  Encryption Required
  Order allow,deny
  Allow localhost slacker
. This is what I got on my cupsd.conf for allow and deny.

slacker is the computer I am posting right now. It is my desktop, I also made sure to edit the hosts file on the PIII machine and added all the other hosts on my lan accordingly. What now?

Oh yea this machine is also running Slackware 12.

Well, I got it. I changed Allow localhost slacker to allow all. Perhaps not the best way, but I'm behind a router not forwarding anything so. I guess that works. Oh well.

Maybe @LOCAL would have been better. According to the docs at the cups website, it will allow access only from local interfaces.
