There's no TCP socket open listening for connections over the network
(only on localhost).  The UDP socket is for broadcasts AFAIK, not
actual printing.

You need to configure the server to accept connections from others.
At http://localhost:631/admin, tick the box for "Share printers
connected to this system" and it will enable it:

% netstat --udp --tcp -l | grep ipp
tcp        0      0 *:ipp                   *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp6       0      0 [::]:ipp                [::]:*                  LISTEN     
udp        0      0 *:ipp                   *:*

Notice how the localhost has been dropped, and replaced with '*' or
