Is your loopback device up? Check with ifconfig.

What does "netstat -l" say? If Cups is listening with default
configuration, it should show a line like this:

tcp        0      0 *:ipp           *:*                     LISTEN

If it doesn't and cupsd is running, maybe your Cups is misconfigured. Take
a look at your /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, especially the sections "Network
Options" and "Security Options".
