Printing to Remote Cups server from Mac OS X.4.1

Since I only use the Canon S600 that's connected to my father's pc, I needed my PowerBook to connect with that machine. I've been looking for the solution for a few hours (since it seems not doable from the Print Setup from Mac OS X), and I finally found a very simple, yet effective solution here. You need to create a file in your home-directory called .cupsrc and put the following to lines in it:

ServerName anouk

Encryption IfRequested

I added "anouk" to my /etc/hosts file. Not sure what the second line does, though. But now it works like a charm, and that's what's most important.
