Hello, Ben :)
This might not help in your case, but in my case, I connect our printer,
via CUPS, to the USB port.  But, as you've probably discovered, that is
not what CUPS means as relating to the printer location.  Our printer is
not on a network, so the correct thing to put as the location of our
printer is "localhost"  I'll try to find out where I found that, just in
case that is not how you hook up your printer.
