Are linux boxes able to see them? IME CUPS discovery works beautifully
in its default state, but distros tend to screw it up in the name of
"security". FWIW my MacBook is able to see my cups servers just fine,
which are ubuntu and debian but not running the default config (they
couldn't even see eachother with the defaults).

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
