Trying to use printers on house machine from the shop machine

Shop machine is kubuntu-6.06 LTS

I did have this working flawlessly 2 years ago, but had a drive hiccup and had 
to format and install again.  AIR, all I had to do then was make 
an /etc/cups/client.conf file that contained one directive, the 

ServerName coyote.coyote.den

coyote.coyote.den resolves to this machine in that machines hosts file.  And I 
have done this again, and restarted the /etc/init.d/cupsys which reports 

I can send firefox to http://coyote.coyote.den:631/printers and see all the 
printers I have defined on this machine just fine, but there are no printers 
showing at http://localhost:631/printers, just a search page.

Trying to add a printer gets me a username and password request which is 
denied always.  sudo works fine however.

What magic twanger have I not plucked in the right key and sequence folks?

Cheers, Gene
