Didier, in CUPS I had checked "Share this printer". However I don't
see how doing so makes the printer accesible to a Mac laptop on
another network (different routers).

If the Mac is on a different network than linux box, is the only way
to enable the Mac to access the Linux printer to provide the Mac
with the printer's public IP address?
