Thank you for that claificattion.

My basic problem seems to be that my linux/printer is on one network
and the Mac laptop on another.

I gather that an easy was have Linux serve a printer is to install
tailscale. Unfortunately, tailscale is not in the Debian repository.
All I find is:

  p   golang-github-tailscale-tscert-dev                                  
  - Minimal library implementing parts of the Tailscale client API
