A couple of things to look at -- is CUPS running and is there only one instance running (there should only be one that will look something like this; yours may look slight different):
ps -ef | grep cups
root 1715 1 0 Aug03 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/cupsd -C /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
Do you have appropriate entries in /etc/hosts
-- should look something like this
grep local /etc/hosts
Can you ping localhost
ping -c 5 localhost

Have you looked in the CUPS error log (it may be in /var/log/cups
Have you looked in your system log (possibly /var/log/messages
) to see if there's a problem.
If any of those are goofy...
Hope this helps some.
