On the BASEMENT computer:
You said on another post that you're sharing the printer: could you post
the contents of /etc/cups/printers.conf?
Also post he output of "lpstat -t"
Check that the line "Browsing on" exists in the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.
Also do you see anything unusual if you do "service cups restart"?
Are there any hints on the log files of incoming connection requests
from the UPSTAIRS computer?
