cupsd.conf help. Linux-Linux printing

A while back I set up SUSE 9.1 for the girlfriend and setup cups for her epson printer.

When I ran 'localhost:631' on my machine (slackware 10.1) it automatically detected the networked printer and away I went.

I changed her distro to Slackware 10.1 also as suse dint have the development stuff and was becomming a pain in the arse.

I have the printer setup and working correctly on the host (hers), and when I try and configure the client I have to enter all the details and the IPP: address.

Im not sure how to find out the IPP address, but to the best of my knowledge I entered it like:


Ive also added 'allow from' to /etc/cups/cupd.conf

<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From
Allow From #(client IP)

and still cant print.

At the moment Im recieving host busy errors when trying to print.

Is there anyway I can set up cupsd.conf to automatically setup clients like in suse?

I use http to print on my other machine and have this device URI:

In the server machine I've this:

<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From
Allow From 10.0.0.*

The rest is most default options. Take a look at cupsd.conf since it's pretty well documented to configure it.
On Slackware you won't find such automated apps, but it's not hard to get stuff working.
