On the print server, look for something that looks like this in

Based on everyone's advice and some online sites I added:

and in the <Location> section
Allow From 192.168.1.*

Then saved and restarted the cups server.
Then set up the printer as

Also tried:

All I ever get in the properties of the printer is
Ready: Network host '' is busy; will retry in 30 seconds...
So Obviously something isn't working right.

I noticed that once I got the cups server setup, the server should be broadcasting and show up as a choice in the printer config GUI. But this isn't the case, maybe if I solve this everything else will fall into place.
Even though cupsd-browsing.conf says the Browsing is off by default, both machines have
Browsing On

I don't think it matters, but the machines are separated by a switch,
Most of my machines are on one device but the server is nested off that beneath a switch, but since that doesn't effect any of my other network functions I don't see why this would be any different.

What's a good way to confirm that I'm hitting port 631 on the machine over the network, or that the Cups server is broadcasting, so I know if the problem is still server config or my desktop machine?
