For testing CUPS you should be using the commands that come with CUPS. Have a look at the manual that comes with cups before you end up messing up the config files again. http://localhost:631
I'll have a look at http://localhost:631 but will stay out of the files as much as possible, as, in theory, they work.

Firstly what is the output of
lpstat -t
on both your server and client.
hylton@Umalusi:~> lpstat -t
lpstat:Unable to connect to server: connection refused

hylton@Spy:~> lpstat -t
lpstat: Unable to connect to server: Resource temporarily unavailable

Kprinter has the problem of not recognising a new IP address if it has an IP address already set. Check on the client machine in ~/.kde/share/config/kdeprinterrc and make sure it has the correct IP address in it as shown below
Mine had the server name as the host and I changed it to the IP.

Don't worry if there is no setting for your server as long as it doesn't have an invalid IP address.
The server I not worry about but I am wondering about your servername entry in the client.conf file as it seems to have 2 full stops after the IP ie .. before your comment. I assume those should be deleted?
