That's the correct file, my mistake.

# You need to listen to port 631 on the machine's ethernet interface.

Listen a.b.c.d:631

These are for clients.  You need the BrowseAddress on the server.  If it 
isn't there already, you can just add it.  My cupsd.conf (running 
Sarge) has this comment before the BrowseAddress entry:

# BrowseAddress: specifies a broadcast address to be used.  By
# default browsing information is not sent!
BrowseAddress @LOCAL

   # You need to add this so remote machines can view jobs etc.
   Allow @LOCAL
