Yes, that is correct. Use Manage jobs for jobs and Manage printers for
printers - you can modify, configure, or even delete and install
printers from the web interface. This is how I usually work.
But, a small warning, you do need to have the access permissions set up
right. I have one box where cups won't let me change anything and I
cannot see what I have configured wrong.
A great advantage of the web interface is you don't need X running to
use it -- just access it via lynx (or other text-i/f browser).
