This seems to be a Cups problem. I not sure but there should be another 
options in the cups configuration file wich is used to grant the access 
to local printers by network hosts and IPS.
Check out the man page of cups to see a way to grant access to all, 
then, once the printer begin to work, you can understand what options 
are used to set permissions.
