Install Cups on your local system, the one you want to print from. Once installed, open a web browser and enter http://localhost:631 this will open up cups ( cupsd has to be running ).

Add a printer, there are examples in the documentatiojn on how to add a printer on another system including using IP addresses.

You didn't state what Samsung printer model you have. You need a linux driver for the printer. Go to to look for the driver to install.

I believe you have need to install the printer as root in Cups. Click on "Do Admin Tasks" and use root and your root password.

That should be it.
