My Linksys switch/printserver has 8 virtual queues (L1..L8) for different
configs of 2 printer ports. But apparently it uses the first one as
default, because it worked even when I called it "lp".

I go to localhost:631 in my browser:
To add a printer I must fill in the name, location and description of the
printer. But I'm not sure what these values should be.
I'm a bit confused with the notion of the CUPS server I think. My printer is
connected directly to the router, so how do my CUPS server and router on
one hand and my CUPS client en CUPS server on the other hand communicate
with eachother. I don't mind a bit of reading but I can't distill this
information from the various documentation pages.
Is there an easy way to change the remote print server for all the local
printer definition ? Is it possible to definie two remote servers for a
local printer, so that the printing is redirected to the second host in
case that the primary host fails ?
