Thanks - Actually I found that you need

Allow From 192.168.0.* (my LAN address range)

in both the <Location /admin> and <Location /> sections

Plus Listen (my print box's IP) at the end of the file

Here's what seems to be the relevant section of my cupsd.conf.  See 
cupsd.conf(5) and the CUPS administrator's manual, and adjust to suit 
your circumstances.  Good luck, Andrew.

<Location /admin>
# You definitely will want to limit access to the administration 
# The default configuration requires a local connection from a user who
# is a member of the system group to do any admin tasks.  You can change
# the group name using the SystemGroup directive.

AuthType Basic
AuthClass System

## Restrict access to local domain
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From

#Encryption Required
