Just tell cups on your print-server to share the printer.

See here:

Don't forget to restart cups after you have made the changes to cupsd.conf

Then, on your other boxes, configure cups to use your shared printer (which will be on your network as something like ipp:// .

Make sure you mark the printer as of type Raw as the clients do not need a printer driver, because this is all done on the print-server.
