Get the new template (!) client.conf file from 10.130.10.18, and put it in the respective directory on your computer:
"scp user@10.130.10.18:/etc/cups/client.conf /etc/cups/client.conf"

Alternatively, you can simply change the address of the CUPS server in your /etc/cups/client.conf from 10.130.14.12 to 10.130.10.18.
Warning: This will overwrite your old printer definitions and your local printer definitions.

Get the template client.conf file from some computer that already knows the CUPS server, and put it in the respective directory on your computer:
"scp user@10.130.10.18:/etc/cups/client.conf /etc/cups/client.conf"

Alternatively, you can follow these instructions (changed August 10, 2009) ...
On your desktop, go to "System --> Administration --> Printing". In the graphical user interface (GUI), click on "Goto Server". Enter the information "10.130.10.18" for CUPS server and blank (i.e. nothing) for username. The "Require encryption" box is unticked. Click on "Connect", and you should see the printers in the network.
