Bad form to reply to my own email but one more thing!

I noticed something unusual but I think is good.  I deleted all the
printers that I had created on the server.  Once I confirmed that they
are all gone, I restarted CUPS.  When I went in and asked it to list
all the printers, cups automatically regenerated the entry for the usb
printer, with the Device URI: socket://  -- that is
the correct one.  Could it be detecting it from the client's USB
connection?  I know if I plug the printer into the server it does the
same thing.

This automatically generated printer entry still does not print
though.  It just sends and vanishes.  No error.
