Can't print to remote printer using CUPS

Hi, I set up a local printer connected directly to my Suse Linux machine and it works fine.

Now I want to be able to print to this printer from another machine.
The machine in question is running XP, and there is a redhat machine running vmware "inside" of the XP machine. All I really care about is the redhat virtual machine.

So, I referenced some pointers in this thread from cevjr:

and I set up the cupsd.conf config file on my Suse machine. Then I went in to the client.conf file on my redhat virtual machine and put the IP of the server there (the IP of the Suse machine is on my local network) The IP of the redhat machine is

It seems like the IP address of the redhat machine should be included somewhere in the SUSE machine's /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file so I tried adding a line to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf that says Allow 192.168.* (is that right?)

I can't see the printer from the redhat machine when i use http://localhost:631 and click on printer. I don't know another way to view this machine.

Any help?

have you checked your hosts.allow? What about a firewall? I know you can't print from a windows client to cups, but with your virtual machine, i guess you'd be all right.
