check the log files, it should say way its denying it.  if not then google
or find out about log info.  maybe you have to increase the log info.

i was messing with the user name and password stuff a while ago and gave
up.  cups doesnt work well with client and server users with passwords.
kind like the nfs issue, only works on a trusted network.

i had a folder in /etc/cups/pam or something after i switched back and it
was messing it up, could not log in and had to remove or somethink like
