Open a browser and navigate to localhost:631. If CUPS is installed properly, you should see CUPS page and you should be able to do many administration tasks from here. Hope this helps.
No it does not work. connection to localhost fails and clicking the unlock button and entering my password does nothing.

# chkconfig --level 345 cups on
# service cups start
And generally any printer configuration needs to be run as the root user.
Okay thanks but it does not work I get the following errors

[root@Caleb Caleb]# systemctl start cups.service
