On IRC sunweaver pointed out that the existence of /etc/cups/client.conf 
would break setting up locally attached printers (via locally running 
cups). While this is true in general, there's a way to have local 
printer(s) (attached to real workstations) configured centrally on 
tjener. To get this working install the package p910nd on the 
workstation and configure it, see man p910nd. (For a USB printer you 
would set P910ND_OPTS="-f /dev/usb/lp0" and P910ND_START=1 in 
/etc/default/p910nd.) Then you can set up this printer on tjener as 
AppSocket/HP Jetdirect printer using 'socket://<workstation-ip>:9100' as 
URI. For diskless workstations a similar app socket tool is available by 
default, see the jessie manual how to set up printers attached to LTSP
