I have a 9.10 Ubuntu Server installed and I want to make it a print server and am trying to get access to the cups browser admin page from a windows client machine. I installed cups:

sudo apt-get install cups

then I edited the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file and tried several different listen cominbations:

Listen 192.168.1.109:631 #ip my router gives it3
Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock #already in conf file
Listen fileserver:631 #hostname of server
Port 631 #listen for all incoming requests on 631?

samba is also installed (which I think is necessary to share the printer out?

and finally I added my user to the lpadmin group:

sudo adduser tone lpadmin

but when I try to navigate any of the following I get 403 forbidden

http://fileserver:631/admin
http://fileserver:631
http://192.168.1.109:631/admin
http://192.168.1.109:631

What did I miss?
