I'm not sure if you can do IP wildcarding in that style, the example
template in the configuration file is a bit vague (using nnn.* etc.),
although one example (nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn/nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn) does look like
they're talking about numerical IP addresses rather than named addresses
(DNS), it doesn't explicitly detail what they mean.  There are other
ways of mentioning address ranges, or interfaces, as shown in the
example configuration file, that may be more practical.

The other thing that springs to mind is that you've said you've done it
just in front of the <Location /> marker.  Do you really mean inside of

Mine looks like:

<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From
Allow From @LOCAL

You also need to do something similar with the Listen directive.
There's no point allowing connections from your LAN if CUPS isn't
listening for connections from it.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
