URIs use the forward slash / not the backwards slash

e.g. http://localhost:631/

General CUPS/IPP notes:

On the CUPS server computer, the firewall must be opened to allow
network printing service. This allows UDP and TCP traffic over port
631, over your network interface. Fedora has a preset option for this
in its firewall control panel. If you have more than one interface, it
needs to be applied to the one your other computers connect with.

On any of the client computers, the firewall must be opened to allow
network printing clients. This allows UDP traffic over port 631.
Fedora has a preset option for this in its firewall control panel.

The CUPS server needs configuring to allow sharing of its printers, and
the setting up of the printer connected to it. If it can print a test
page, then any client should be able to.

The CUPS clients shouldn't need any configuring of their CUPS service,
and attempting to do so can cause problems. They should simply find the
available printers on the network, when the above three conditions are
set up. The only printing configuring that should be necessary, is
choosing a printer to print to, when you try printing from a program.
But, if there's only one printer on the network, it should get
automatically chosen as the printer to use.

Not knowing how the iMac reports its errors. I couldn't say whether its
"it's busy" error message means it couldn't get any TCP/IP traffic
through the network to try and print, or it has got through to the print
server, and the message is that the printer (or printer server) is busy.

You can look at the print servers logs, to see if some attempt is
getting through to it.

[tim@localhost ~]$ uname -r
