CUPS interface for print server

For anyone that manages a Linux-based print server, the CUPS web-based interface will be a blessing. Instead of having to be seated at that print server, or remoting into the machine itself, you can fire up http://ADDRESS_OF_SERVER:631 (Where ADDRESS_OF_SERVER is the actual address of the print server). From this interface you can manage printers/printer groups/print jobs, as well as control who has access to which printers. This printer admin tool is installed by default with CUPS.
