http://askubuntu.com – I'm on Ubuntu server 10.10 and I need to connect a HP Laserjet printer via USB and share it to the LAN. I followed some tutorial on the internet to install the HPLIP drivers and configuring CUPS. I have access to the web interface of the server and printing the test page works like a charm. I can also edit all the default printer options, viewing the queue and so on. The only thing that I can't do is installing and find the printer from other clients on same the LAN. I tried it with Windows 7's default searching and nothing appears, I tried to install a new TCP/IP port with the server's IP (HowTos)
