In /usr/share/cups/model/Canon are the drivers.  I think your best bet
is the one listed first, which is S400-bjc600.ppd.  What I did was
copy the driver to /etc/cups/ppd and then symlinked Canon.ppd to it
(you don't have to copy it -- the symlink is sufficient; I just wanted
both in the same place).  That way I knew that Canon.ppd was correct.

I have not tried the gimpprint driver -- maybe I should do that before
I go any further.

You have to install everything on the other machine as well, and when
you add the printer, use ipp://name.of.server/printers/xxx is whatever
name you have given the printer.  Once I got the name right,
everything just worked.
