1) Select the printer you wish to share, click the policies tab, and
2) Select the server settings and check "share published printers
connected to this system"
Now CUPS is sharing the printer. It will show up automatically on any
other linux systems where CUPS is set to "show printers shared by other
systems" Unfortunately, system-config-printer does not integrate with
samba, so your printer will not magically appear in Windows. Also
unfortunately, system-config-printer does not show you the ipp:// URL
for manually adding the printer to Windows.
