You need to tell CUPS on the machine with the printer to broadcast it's 
services and allow access from computers on the local network.  Once 
that is done the client should automatically find the server within a 
minute or so.  In /etc/cups.conf, change the following:

#BrowseAddress x.y.z.255
#BrowseAddress x.y.255.255
#BrowseAddress x.255.255.255
BrowseAddress @LOCAL			# un-comment this
#BrowseAddress @IF(name)


<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From
Allow From @LOCAL 				# add this
