Are you trying to access cups from a browser on the same machine on
which cups is installed?

Under security options in /etc/cups/cups.conf you need something like:

<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From  
Allow From 192.168.1.*  # to access from another PC on the LAN

To login type in your browser:


or http://[ipaddress]:631  (to access from a different machine)
