This is hard to explain quickly. But for one thing their is no way using
system-config-printer that I know to distinguish between the
configuration in the client.conf file of remote printers on the same LAN
versus  remote printers on a different LAN.


"You are old," said the youth, "and your programs don't run, And there
isn't one language you like; Yet of useful suggestions for help you have
none -- Have you thought about taking a hike?" "Since I never write
programs," his father replied, "Every language looks equally bad; Yet
the people keep paying to read all my books And don't realize that
they've been had."
