Not using icewm, but I do use cups.

In your cups.conf do you have "Port 631" or something else? (it is
configurable -- under "Network Options")

Does "#netstat -ptl" show cupsd listening on any port?

Then check under "Browsing Options" (enabled by default--did you disable
it?) You may have to tweak some of the browse settings if you want to
access it from your network rather than the machine itself.  You may
also want to tweak "Security Options" once you get it working to allow
specific users to modify settings.
