The way this is meant to work is:

1. On machine A, set 'Share printers connected to this system', either
using System->Administration->Printing or with the CUPS web interface

2. On laptop B, adjust the firewall so that IPP UDP packets are allowed

3. On machine A, plug in the printer.

The queue is automatically created and shared.

You can do things in a different order, it just might take more time for
the queue to show up on the laptop.
