An hour after I posted that, I did find the problem.  In 
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf, network browsing was disabled, again.  I have 
specifically enabled that several time, the most recent was I believe in 
June or July of this summer.  I turned it back on, did the search for 
printers again, then remembered I had not restarted cups, and did so.  Both 
machines then found the shared printers and I was able to print a .hal 
config file from both machines.

Then I went back and did the chattr +i on both of those 
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf files.  If the next cups update has a litter of 
elephants over that, so be it.

I have a long history, going clear back to his starving student days, with 
Michael Sweet, but I won't re-wash that laundry here.

I just found an unsubscribe confirm, so I subbed to my newer address.  I 
had forgotten that was a gmail account and I was getting rid of those last 

Cheers, Gene
