You can use cups for print server.
install cups
root# yum install cups
after that configure cups
root# vi /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
The default CUPS configuration limits administration to the local machine. To open up access, edit the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf and comment out the lines reading:

The Below lines restricts web administration access to localhost
Comment lines 842, 843, 844 so it should look like this

Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from

To disable password authentication you need to edit the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file and comment out the lines reading:

The Below lines restricts the printer access to system users

Comment lines 838, 839 so the user can print without authentication
AuthType Basic
AuthClass System

Restart the CUPS server

root# service cups restart

Now manage your cups server through web access

http://localhost:631 - on local system
