Well I still couldn't get things to work i.e. to print to the network 
CUPS printer server - so I attached the printer directly to the client/
laptop via USB and ran Cups locally on the client. It worked immediately 
and I was able to configure the printer with the CUPS web interface
on localhost:631, setup the printer from Quickbooks, and printer from 
Quickbooks with no further problems.
