You are very lucky.
CUPS is great when it is working.
When it is not working it is a nightmare.
The Fedora tools (like system-config-printer) don't work properly,
and the CUPS documentation was written by cyborgs.
Incidentally, you didn't mention /etc/cups/printers.conf .
I have the line
in printers.conf on my laptop.
(My desktop, to which the printer is attached, is called "alfred".)
