[cups] Can't print remote

I don't understand what I need to do. I have configured the printer on 
Vince2 using the CUPS gui in Firefox.  CUPS found it and it is in the 
CUPS list.  If I try to use the CUPS GUI to print a test page, it 
fails.  If I try to use Firefox to print something, the printer is 
listed but, again, if I try to print something, it does not work.  What 
do I need to do to print over the network. I am getting tired of hooking 
up a cble whenever I want to print something.

Thank you,

Vincent Radice
