Oh, my cups caught a Suse Linux node's printers (his name's "shtopor"), 
for example printer "horse" has

    Horse <http://shtopor:631/printers/Horse> "Connecting to shtopor on
    port 631..."

<http://shtopor:631/printers/Horse> 	*Description:* HP 2300
*Make and Model:* HP LaserJet 2300 Postscript (recommended) on shtopor
*Printer State:* idle, accepting jobs, published.
*Device URI:* ipp://shtopor:631/printers/Horse

But why? I don't understand...
