Printer config - KDE Control Module

I haven't been paying attention to this thread but I just had a quick glance.

A while back before we dropped dual booting and installed cxoffice, I had my 
daughter's workstation connecting to CUPS on a Linux box using IPP protocol 
when she was up in windows.

I was using win2k but I understand it can be done using XP as well. This was 
back around slack-9.0-9.1 so I'm sure more recent versions of CUPS have the 
same if not enhanced IPP capabilities.

Here's the link to  page that I used as a reference, it's still there:
