You do have a server, and it's running. You just haven't told it about
any printers. You do that either with the web browser interface I
suggested or on the command line with "lpadmin".

Only one machine on the printer's network needs to run a CUPS server.
The other machines can send their jobs to the server to be printed.

Your printer has a hard drive?
