Once you set up the network you can try to add the following line to
your /etc/cpus/client.conf

ServerName name.of.your.server

and then restart cups. name.of.the.server can be a fully qualified hostname
or an ip. But you can only specify one server at time.

But this wont work if you can't at least ping the machines. So set up fist
your network.
