Yes. However, even when you have poked the hole in the firewall that
allows you to print to the printer, cupsd doesn't let you do interesting
things like kill your print jobs in the default setting. Also, you need
to know exactly the URL to type, in the default config you can't access
http://<computername>:631/ remotely, only
http://<computername>:631/printers/<printername> . While this might be
quite reasonable from a security point of view, it's not exactly an
interface I'd like to try to explain to a beginner.
