Seems obvious enough to me.  CUPS on bpi54 was only listening to
loopback (localhost), but Gene wanted to print through it remotely.
So he had to make it listen to the network instead.

My questions would be:

1) Can you put *both* Listen lines in, to keep loopback working?

2) Failing that, can you use as the Listen address, to listen on
   all interfaces?  That's the normal convention.
