Hello,  My locally attached and functioning hp5000, despite being shared is 
unaccessible.  The FC4 server does not have a firewall or iptables 
running...  No matter what I seem to try to do, I can't get another FC4 box 
to print to it...  All I get in either the system-config-printer or cups 
http gui is: "Unable to get printer status (client-error-forbidden)!"

I do have sharing chosen on the server with the printer...  Help!
