Hi.  First, I did not suggest that Samba was garbage, only that it is
overkill for what you need.  To see if the printer is reachable, go the
machine which is trying to access the printer, open a web browser, and
visit http://address-or-ip-of-machine:631

If that works, then we have to do more digging.  If that does not work
(i.e., you don't see the CUPS screen), then that is the first thing you
need to solve.
