That means you don't have any daemons listening on the port.  It does
not mean the authentication failed.  

Did you install the 'cupsys' package?  Did you run
    /etc/init.d/cupsys start
?  Check that cups is running and listening on port 631 (the default
for it) with 'ps' and 'netstat'.



Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you
rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and
humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke
is easy and my burden is light.
        Matthew 11:28-30
