I think you need to have the correct IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) Address.

Which is http://printserverIP:631/printer/printername, if I am not mistaken.

To be sure, on your print server, use the web browser to go to the printer configuration page. And use that address.

You may have to edit cupsd.conf, the Allow directive

"Allow from" should be there somewhere
