this was it!
I have now printed (twice) from the iMac to my f14 printer
I know i enabled the 'IPP server' on the f14 firewall a few days ago
Today 18 OCT I reckd firewall on f14 and saw 'IPP server' box _not_ ckd.
so i redid it via 'system-config-firewall'
and then immediately went back to imac and printing worked!!!!???
This has been such a battle that I don't fully trust this fix will stay.
But for now, consider it done.
thanks to Tim and Emilio!
