The coolest thing about CUPS is that once you have _one_ CUPS server in
your network and you configure it as master, it will automatically know
and publish _every_ printer in your network (as long as they are public).
Just activate the browsing feature in cups.conf.

No local drivers, no hassle, no installing anything.
