What's a good way to confirm that I'm hitting port 631 on the machine over the network, or that the Cups server is broadcasting, so I know if the problem is still server config or my desktop machine?

Have you tried

- port-scanning the server from the client machine using nmap?
- running netstat -lpt on the server to see whether it is listening on that
- manually connecting to the server's port from the client using telnet and
  typing things to provoke a response?
Thanks, those commands really shed come light on the situation. The server is definately not opening port 631 outside itself, and I've confirmed, no firewall is running.
I tried adding the following lines, without the (comments) of course, to the cupsd.conf and restarting after each one, but nothing seemed to change the nmap or netstat results
Listen (defualt)
Port 631 (Theoretically any computer should be able to hit the port)
Listen (My desktop machine)

Listen owl:631 (My desktop machine)

Listen Coyote:631 (the server)
Listen coyote:631 (the server)
Any more ideas?
