There's no intention behind it not currently working for you.  I would
expect altering the firewall to do the trick.

What's in /etc/sysconfig/system-config-firewall?  Hopefully there's a
line saying "--service=ipp-client".

Next would be to take a look at the TCP traffic using wireshark, and
check that you are receiving UDP packets on port 631.

After that, ramp up the debugging (with "cupsctl LogLevel=debug2") and
take a look at what gets written to /var/log/cups/error_log when a
packet comes in.
