Are you any good on Apache access configuration? cups uses the same style.
Again, in cupsd.conf
you'll find things like:
# Allow remote administration...
Which means it will allow access from any address which resolves back to a name that is not in any domain. So, if you edit your /etc/hosts
file to add an entry for the client that is trying to connect and make sure that the first name part is just the short name, e.g:
192.168.1.105 ps3 ps3.local
then it should work. Or you could edit all of the @LOCAL entries in cupsd.conf...
At this point "man cupsd.conf" might be a good idea.
